We would like to start today by thanking the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country, as well as their families. Today, we honor you for your courage, selflessness and duty to country. May we all take time to reflect on the meaning and importance of the day.
Today not only marks Memorial Day but also the final countdown to the Piece by Piece 5K this Saturday, June 3rd. While I was away for work, Jen has been working hard to prepare for the race. Our virtual packets have been mailed to participants, our medals and awards have arrived, and boxes are being packed for race day.
Our number of pre-registered participants increased this year and we hope to have many more sign-up the morning of the race. Our sponsors have also been amazing this year including some of our affiliates – SLS3, Wiivv, and Nuun. We are excited to give away amazing prizes to some awesome people as they help us support a great cause.
We know Parker is excited to participate this year and he recently got new “big boy” running shoes with actual laces instead of velcro. I know one day he will be faster than his old man, the question is how soon. This year his Aunt is flying in to town to run with him after one of his grandma’s ran with him last year.
This week will be crazy as we continue to pack supplies, pick up final donations, make final arrangements and get less sleep each night. If you are participating, We hope you love our race and we want you to know that we put a lot of work into making this our best race so far.
We cant wait to see you on Saturday!
