The 24th Annual Deary Race/Walk/Run/Ride is coming up ~ Saturday, August 10th, 2013.
Last year I raised a little over $700 to donate to this fund, which supports local people with cancer, by trying to run the 5 mile race ten times, for a total of 50 miles. (I made it 25 miles one day, and 20 miles the next day. That was acceptable to me).
My buddy created and does this over the top extension of the usual 5 mile run to a 50 mile run fundraiser... he does it year after year, with ease. He does it because he lost loved ones to cancer. He is a machine.
I have not yet decided about me and 50 miles this year, but that is probably because it is still yucky weather out. Once it gets nicer, I might commit.
In the meantime, I have started my fundraiser. Taking some great pictures from past Deary Races and the beautiful memorial gardens at JD Coopers, I am making greeting cards and collages to sell with fabulous pink colors. The works have begun, card stock has been cut & folded.
I do have plenty of time to complete this project, but it will probably be complete within a week or two!
I am a Putnamaniac working on my Deary Fundraiser already!
