2019 Charlotte Get Your Rear in Gear



DAM TWIN SQUAD (previously TEAM VIAR!)!!

I am SO EXCITED to share some changes to our team for this year's Get Your Rear In Gear - Charlotte, NC 5k on March 30th!! As many of you know, my fraternal twin sister, Meredith Chezem, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Colon Cancer last year. Since then, we've been talking about coming together to remind people to know their family history, to be proactive with that knowledge, and to be your own advocate. Our story is unique, and we hope our story can continue to help more people!

We've always been those Dam Twins, so this new team name was pretty easy to come up with, LOL!! I am working to find a team sponsor for our new team t-shirts (if you think your company would be interested, I would LOVE to talk to you! ) More details to come on the t-shirts!

For those new to this event, we are participating in the 10th Annual Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. The majority of funds we raise will stay in the Charlotte area, helping with awareness, prevention and early detection of this disease, and providing funding for important grants to support our local colon cancer fighters.

I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer on March 21, 2012, at age 39. I was given 10% odds to live, and I've fought every day since. And, with Meredith's diagnosis last year, I am especially motivated to make this our biggest year yet!

Join our team and come either run or walk with us! Don't worry, we have ALL fitness levels on our team! Some are more serious than others! ;-)  If you can't make the event, you can be a "Virtual Runner", raising money for our team and being a team member from afar!

 THANK YOU for your support!!

Love always,
