Join us: Brains Together for a Cure Walk/Run - Oct. 1, 2016

A frost warning in northern Minnesota this morning means fall is definitely here. Still some warm, sunny days, but the cold morning air foretells the future.

One fall activity we have taken part in the past 5 years is the Brains Together For a Cure annual walk. The first year we took part, Shannon was with us...

Shannon came to the walk from hockey tryouts and after the walk, we went and watched her play soccer... 3 months later she was gone...

I have to remind myself of those details from time to time. I want to remember her in full stride like she was on that October day. At her soccer game that afternoon, she headed a ball and then looked at all of us on the sidelines and smiled her beautiful, playful smile. The girl with the brain tumor finding humor in the absurdity of her heading a soccer ball! That day was Shannon in a nutshell.

Brains Together for a Cure is a local organization and all money raised funds innovative brain tumor research here in Rochester at Mayo Clinic. 

We will take part again this year, but with a new twist -  I will walk and Dan will run. BTFAC is celebrating 10 years, and they have added a 5K/10K run this year in addition to the 5K walk.

If you are free October 1, come join us. 

We will make a $1000 donation from the Shannon O'Hara Foundation in Shannon's memory, thanks to all of your support.  Hope to see you there.
