Hello friends! If you’re planning to run the 5-mile race or walk the 5K fun/fitness walk, please remember to pre-register for the 8th Annual Grace Race – $20 through 9/17/11, then registration fee goes up to $25.00. Register here. So far the pre-registered ladies outnumber the guys by nearly 50%. Let’s go guys – time to stop procrastinating! We’d love to see some more youths in the race too, competing in the 14 and under and 15-19 age groups. Remember we’ve got the Pledge Back Rewards program this year, with neat prizes including iPads, iPods, and Kindles – see my blog on August 5th and print out a pledge sheet. We need some more volunteers to help on race day. Can you and a friend spare a couple hours on a Saturday morning for a good cause and a rewarding community event? Join the team and have some fun cheering on the runners and walkers – register as a volunteer here. We’re looking forward to seeing you on October 1st. With your participation, we'll finish the school in Kenya this year!
