Hi everyone! This year we are keeping things simple and sweet with one 5k race and fundraiser. The race I have chosen is October 30, 2010 in Roswell, GA. It is 20$ to register. I want to encourage walkers and runners to come out and join us, as well as cheerleaders on the sidelines, or anyone that can offer a helping hand the morning of the race or simply in organizing and fundraising.
Our goal is to raise more money than last year! I have set up a fundraising page to benefit the Charge Syndrome Foundation, and our goal is set at 1500$. I am hoping to get atleast 10 people to commit to a personal goal of 100$ each, which should be pretty easy by simply sharing our links and Sara's story on facebook, and via email.
Mellow Mushroom Powers Ferry will be hosting a Friday night fundraiser October 22, 2010 with Davin McCoy and the coming attractions, an amazing singer/ songwriter...by far my favorite local musician. Cone out and eat some pizza and listen to some great music and support us!!!
We will also be coordinating an afternoon at Sips N Strokes as another fundraiser..details TBA. Tshirts to wear on race day will be set up in a template on Vistaprint and each participant will be responsible for ordering their own. I have some leftovers from last year if anyone wants to borrow one.
I would love to squeeze in some group runs to prepare. I myself have lots of catching up to do from a long hiatus of not running or taking very good care of myself....so I will be at the Powers Ferry Chattahoochee river trails next Sunday at 6pm rain or shine to get it started. Come on out!!!
That's it for now, keep an eye out for facebook statuses that you can share to get us noticed and get donations coming in. To learn and share Sara's story visit my blog archive "All about my Sweet Sara"
Thankyou for your love and support! Melissa and Sara
