Registrants were able to create teams and do team fundraising too. We wore our pink and black shirts to support Stevie. Many people were inspired to run in honor of someone they knew, and they had a nice ceremony after the event to honor several survivors, including Stevie. It was very touching, and TEAM STEVIE had the largest team and raised the most funds! Hopefully some of the money raised at this event will help researchers find a cure! I also have to give a big shout out to Shari, Dusti, Tyler, and Tricia for making the event such a huge success. Your hard work really paid off, ladies. The event was awesome and so well organized!
The final results for the Head for the Cure 5K - North Texas event were astounding:
2,219 registered runners (500 expected, remember?!)
283 TEAM STEVIE members$11,415 TEAM STEVIE fundraising
$152,000 total fundraising for brain cancer research at MD Anderson (a little more than the $25K they hoped for, right?!)
"C" is for C25K) and complete a 5K sometime this year. I was able to jog easily starting a couple weeks ago, but Tully's hectic schedule hasn't allowed for much free time for exercise. Hopefully that changes soon!
Here are some more photos from the event. John did an awesome job capturing everything, especially when we were doing the actual 5K. Thanks, sweets!
