Run for a cause

25 Jul

I’m all about running for the heck of it. And racing, yeah, you’ll do that too just because. But when you can do both for a purpose, for a really good cause, it should be an extra incentive.

Last year, I attended the Miles With A Message 5K run/walk behind Queensbury Elementary School. It was organized by Katie Mannix and a group of classmates in memory of Mannix’s departed cousin. The idea was to get the word out about teen suicide and proceeds went to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

This year, the second annual event is scheduled for Saturday at the Queensbury school trails.

Here are the details:  http://afsp.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.eventDetails&eventID=1550

And the basics: 9 a.m. start on Saturday, July 30. Pre-registration $15 (click the link above) until July 26, then $20.
