We are so appreciative of the outpouring of support we’ve received since February 2. We truly can’t thank you enough. So many of you have asked what you can do to help Jen’s family and we have an answer, one that we know would come straight out of Jen’s mouth. Come out to the RunJenRun 5K on March 1!
Are you worried that you can’t run 3 miles? No worries! In your head, just think of it as the WalkJenWalk 5Kl! We want people out there running, walking, skipping, sauntering, pogo sticking. . . . well, maybe not pogo sticking, but you get our point. We welcome you to join us by doing whatever activity makes you the most comfortable. There will be just as many folks out walking and doing run / walk combos as there will be people running all out. So don’t let your mind start telling you that you’re going to be the last one out on the course!
The point is to honor the memory of an influential and outstanding woman who let us into her life and allowed us to join her on her difficult journey. Jen’s open and honest blog changed the way many of us understood the fight against breast cancer. And through her own funny, raw, and feisty words, she let us know how happy it made her to help the many families financially devastated by medical bills and treatments. By coming out to Symphony Park on March 1, you are personally furthering Jen’s dream.
So please join us. But maybe leave the pogo stick at home.
