Team KB was inspired by our beloved Krista Bartle, who was suddenly taken from our lives last fall.
Krista was an avid athlete, an animal lover, and also a devoted daughter, sister and friend. Her inspiration lives within us all. Krista had planned to run a race with friends this Spring, and while she is now unable to achieve this goal, over 20 of her dearest loved ones are committed to dedicating their time and energy to run on her behalf. Krista's friends and family and are traveling from all across the East Coast to New York City on March 24th to run the NYC 13.1 Half Marathon and 5K, and to remember this beautiful person who made a difference in the lives of so many (pets included!).
Please help us raise money for an organization that was near and dear to our Krista's heart - All Animals Matter is an organization based in Krista's hometown of Oxford, NY. All Animals Matter works to reduce the number of animals euthanized in shelters through education and the humane treatment of animals through spaying and neutering. Please help us in continuing to raise funds for an organization so important to our wonderful Krista.
If you would like to join our team and help raise money for this great organization, please do so, and please feel free to share with anyone who would like to contribute to our efforts.
If you would like to join us for the run, please visit 131marathon.com to register - we would love to run or walk alongside you, in honor of this wonderful person who left us too soon.
Many thanks for your well wishes and support,
