BENEFITING: Fairmount Park Conservancy
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
The 2016 Broad Street Run is on Sunday, May 1st. This year's 10-miler is special to me because its 25th aniversary of my first BSR, but also because I am part of a team fundraising for Fairmount Park and the Fairmont Park Conservancy. I ran my first Broad Street in less than 70 minutes. Years later the pace is a little slower, but is a lot more fun - the crowd has more than quadrupled!... and though its been called "worst parade ever", its an epic experience to run w/ 30,000 or so fellow humans across Philadelphia. Come out and cheer the crazies -- and please donate to the cause.
