Dear Friends and Family,
I wanted to touch base and thank everyone who supported me this year on the Scope It Out 5k run/walk for Colon Cancer Awareness on Saturday, March 24th, 2007 in Washington DC. The race was a great success and raised well over $80,000. I am even more proud to announce that our team, Team Ghostriders, was both the top fund raising team in total dollar contributions and also the top team in total number of contributors. We raised $3000+ between 6 of us!
After losing Mikey to colon cancer in September of 2005 at 26 years old, I can’t even put to words how much I am grateful for all of your support and donations. I’m sure Mike was laughing from heaven as we struggled to cross the finish line so early in the morning! Thank you all for your amazing contributions and support.
On the website now you can see the results from the race:
We were the 10th fastest team (they counted the top 5 finishers per team), but I promise we will do better next year. Nobody told us that hangovers weren’t good for race day! Brett was our superstar male at 22:44, and Chris and Megan made sure that we were represented in the back of the pack as well. Our team was 8 members strong, but we’re happy to recruit more as we plan to do the event next year and for many years to come.
