How to start running....Take 1 step at a time

After a long absence, consisting of my final year of graduate school and lots of work, we are finally back up and running.

In little over a month, the annual Run For Dad charity race will take place. For those that have not followed For My Father, this will be the third year that we have participated. Each consecutive year we participate, we double our donations to the American Cancer Society. Last year we raised $500 dollars and to keep with tradition, we are trying to raise $1,000 this year. We are starting the process of finding runners and sponsors earlier this year for that reason.

If you are interested in either the race or walk that take place that day, please email jointeam @ formyfather.org. I will be posting links with a complete packet of information for the race along with the race application.

Don't Forget

Just a few reminders

If you have not already told me you are going to run on sunday please email me at jointeam at formyfather.org with the name you would like on the front of your shirt. We will be making the shirts thursday night and need an accurate count of participants. We are also still looking for additional people to come out on Sunday, so invite your friends and family. If you would like to show your support but can not walk or run the race, we are making support shirts at a cost of $5 per shirt. If you would like a support shirt I need to know by thursday. The entry fee and race form are due to me by Saturday because I will be going to the race early on sunday to register all For My Father participants. Lastly, we are receiving a great number of donations, but please make a final push these last few days before the race.

Keep up the good work

Run for Dad a huge success


click picture for larger view

17 runners, walkers, and supporters showed up yesterday morning in West Windsor for the most attended charity event in history. Our runners took 4 age group awards. Efran Cazalas took 2nd and Daniel Hayward took 3rd in the 20-24 age group. I took first in the 25-29 group and Desiree Lara took 2nd in the 20-24 female group. After the race we presented our check to Glenn Parker from ACS and he spoke a few kind words about our organization. The above picture has everyone standing right before I handed the check to a spokesperson for the American Cancer Society(ACS). I personally want to thank Glenn Parker and Janet Sorge for all the help streamlining our team's registration. I also want to thank all our runners, walkers, and supporters for making this event not only fun but memorable.

It will take me a few days to put the 90+ pictures on the web, so check back for them in a few days. I also will be posting details about our next event in the next week.
