There's a First Time for Everything.... So Join Me!

Monday, July 14, 2014

Guess what I'm doing this Summer for the first time EVER?!   I'm going to be RUNNING (not walking this time) in an actual 5k!  So here's some info about it and how you can join me if you're local! 

When is it?
August 23, 2014 at 8:45 AM

Where is it?
Harrisburg, PA on City Island and Riverfront Park.

What is it?
Organized by Free To Breathe, their mission is to help double lung cancer survival.  The money raised goes towards vital research programs that are dedicated to finding a way to survive for people affected by lung cancer. 

Why am I participating?

This actually is a way for me to support my friend Vicki.  Since I know what it's like to lose your best friend, I am supporting Vicki because her best friend passed away from Lung Cancer.  She had suffered from an intestinal cancer before that in 2008 so she had a very long journey that her friends stood by her through. 

Just imagine having to watch one of your best friends or family members suffer slowly and there's NOTHING you can do. 
So to help her legacy live on I'm running in her memory. 
I've NEVER run one of these things before, I just walked the mile last year so this is going to be interesting.  I'm actually spending the next 2 months before this event running on an almost daily basis to get myself ready.  It's a great reason to make myself start exercising more!
How Can You Help?
You can donate here.
Or you can register to run or walk and make sure you search for Team Kendra so you can join on my team!! 
If you plan to attend make sure you check out the Facebook Event.  
You can find all the event information here.
