2nd Annual 5k Run/Walk – A Success
Thank you to everyone who came out and ran or walked in our 5k Walk/Run held on 6/23/2013 at Bunker Hill! 86 Runners/Walkers in total! The day started out in a down pour but by the time of the race it was all sunshine! Thank you to Grace Rasmussen (Misfit Fitness) who organized the event for the second year and once again did an amazing job! Grace approached Blair’s Tree of Hope 3 years ago when she was running in the Twin City Marathon and asked if she could run for BTOH! Of course we gladly accepted and all funds she raised were given to us! Now she is the organizer of our 5k Run/Walk through her business MisFit Fitness and a part of our Blair’s Tree of Hope family! Along with Grace we have another volunteer who helped her in many ways especially the day of and that is Steve Melek – thank you for being there and doing all that you did! Thank you to the sponsors and volunteers without each of you this event would not have been the success it has! At this event we hosted a Bone Marrow Drive through the Bahbad.org and signed up 10 new potential donors! Thank you to those of you that signed up and hoping that you get that call to save a life!
