Happy Cool Sunday!
A few things…
I could still use a few more volunteers for our two big events this week:
1. The Cup at Panorama on Tuesday at 5:00pm (arrive at 4:30)
2. The Women’s Four Miler very early Saturday morning at Foxfield (only need parkers at this point)
Please text me if you can lend a hand. Thanks so much!
Also, my son Alec and his wife Lawren are organizing a big fund raiser called JackFest on November 3rd for the three-year old son of close friends, who is battling a very serious form cancer. He was treated at UVa but then sent up to CHOP, where he will be undergoing a stem cell transplant that will keep him in the hospital up in Philly for 5 months. If you can’t make the fundraiser, Alec asked me if you would help at some level, like the silent auction.
I know I’m always asking you for a lot, so thanks. That’s what makes you all such a very special group!
NEW? Please get in touch with me before Wednesday’s workout.
