BENEFITING: MELANOMA RESEARCH FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Feb 16, 2013
Melissa Batie Johnson
The Romance Run is a first-time event in honor of the toughest couple I've ever met--Chris and Jenny Palmer. Their love for each other and for their son, Marshall is one for the ages. They have raised more than ??? in the past decade to fight cancer through Relay for Life, The KENTucky Derby, Beat the Beast, and their own sweet fundraiser "Romance For a Cure" a "bake sale" that has raised ??? for the Melanoma Research Foundation. Chris is in the fight of his life with that particular beast, and yet the couple just keeps giving. The Romance Run will benefit the Melanoma Research foundation and is a 5-K with a twist--Runners (and walkers) will compete holding hands. Thanks to Wendy Feller of the Smittens company, the first 50 teams (100 participants) will receive a set of Smittens (hand holding mittens--check them out!) in which to compete.
