(THE LONGER VERSION:)
I am coming up on my deadline for my 5th 5K race! My 55th birthday is Sunday, July 3rd and that is the day I have CHOSEN to complete my final 5K to meet my goal. Unfortunately, I am dealing with medical issues that will not allow me to run OR walk the 5K so, Here’s my crazy idea… WALK FOR ME! I will cheer you on! We have signed up for a VIRTUAL 5K race to benefit Re-Member and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Our church sends several groups each year to serve families that desperately need it! The living conditions on the Reservation are primitive and poverty stricken. Many children and families benefit from the help that is given - physically and financially. Sign up for the 5K here: https://www3.thedatabank.com/dpg/523/spdf.asp?newsession=1&formid=16_Virtual_TT&aacwc=374565233425379946453964179833149 The VIRTUAL part means that we can make our own course, time and date. If you want to sign up- you can walk/run wherever you are or if you're local, you can join us here. My family and anyone else who would like to join them, will walk/run a 5K route either around Whalon Lake or through the shaded paths of the forest preserve, depending on weather. We'll start at 4:00. Afterwards, please join us for a patio barbecue in our back yard to enjoy food, games and friends! If you don't walk with us, join us at 6:00. Raising MONEY for charity has become my real passion through this journey. People have donated over $1000 in my previous races! How cool is that??!! I would LOVE it if you would help me with this final fund raiser to help raise another $4,500 for a total of $5,500 (get it?) . (With the late notice, we'll just do the best we can). If you can or can’t walk the 5K or join us for the bbq afterwards, please DONATE and help me out by sending the fundraising page to your friends. It is a good cause that anyone can learn more about by going to their web page: http://www.re-member.org/projects.aspx Thank you all for your support through the year! It's been an honor to run/walk to raise money for the charities. I'm almost to 55!!
