Special K Believers
It's that time of year again! We are participating in the 2017 Boston Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. We want to make a difference for the thousands of people in our community touched by colon cancer. The funds we raise will stay right here, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease. Our family is so excited to start rallying the troops and bring home the trophy for the largest team for the third year in a row!! The last two years we exceeded our goal for members on our team and we couldn't have done it without all of the support from our amazing family and friends! Our entire family is so lucky to have such a strong support system built up by all of you!
Our mom's best friend, Marie, created this team four years ago to support her best friend in fighting through this horrible disease. The first three years have been a huge success and really showed how much love everyone had for our mom. Unfortunately, our mom lost her 9 year battle this past February. Her strength throughout the 9 years was admirable to all. Let's make KJ proud and do this for the fourth year! Our goal is not only take home that trophy for largest team a third time, but more importantly to raise as much money as we can in memory of our mom. We are excited to walk again this year in her memory and support the many others who have been affected by this disease.
Please come and join our team or consider donating!
Researchers are getting close in trying to find a cure - Our mom was brave enough to try some of the clinical trials that are out there. Although her case was too advanced, we know there are others who need these trials. The money raised during this walk will help move the process forward and hopefully, one day, allow everyone to beat this disease.
Thank you in advance for your help!
