Joe P. Rally Run

Dust off those running shoes, because the Joe P. Rally Run is coming up. It will be held on April 16th, 2011 at Centennial Park in Nashville, TN. We are so excited about this year's race. There will be a lot of new things, including a 1K Fun Run for the kiddos! The Fun Run will be at 8:30 and the 5K will begin at 9 a.m. The children will run against the Chick-Fil-A cow, and if they beat him (I have a sneaking suspicion he is very slow :)) they will get a prize from Chick-Fil-A!

There will also be some amazing prizes for the adults running. I think I've heard rumors of free Chick-Fil-A for a year to 2 winning adults!

But, most importantly we are excited to celebrate Joseph's life and try to raise money for childhood cancer research. We have raised the goal to $50k this year. Do you think we can do it? I do!

A few high schools from the Nashville area have formed teams and will compete against other teams that form. I believe there will be a way to do that on the website soon.

To register, go here.

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving and have a wonderful Christmas. And, we hope to see you in April!

***P.S.*** My sister is doing a giveaway for a beautiful new stamper here. It ends Friday, Dec. 3.

Can I run against the cow? That sounds a lot more fun than 5 whole K's.
