Race day details

Sep 12


There is still time to sign up for Saturday’s Race for the Cure if you are interested.  Here is the link to register, and our team name is “Do Today Well.”  You can donate on that page also.  I am a procrastinator myself, so I have a special love for all the last minute folks who sign up.

For anyone meeting up with me/us on Race Day, here are some key details.

  • We’re traveling with a stroller and our pace will be family-friendly.  
  • The 5k starts at 9am at the corner of Race Street and Freedom Way.
  • We are going to get there early so that we can park easily and walk through the exhibition at Great American Ball Park (Red’s stadium.)  Plan on lots of people and lots to look at.
  • From 8:30 to 8:45, Team Do Today Well will hang around the northwest corner of Walnut St and Freedom Way.  This is my best guess as a good meeting spot; it’s about 2 blocks from the starting line and right in the middle of the action.  See map of this location.  We can also be in touch via phone/text.  Email me (andersonfamilyzoo (at) gmail (dot) com) if you want my number.

I’ll be walking with Brad, Maren and Greta, as well as many other family members.  I’ll be walking with long-time friends, and new friends.  I’ll be walking with fellow-survivor friends, and even stranger-friends.  I’ll be walking and praying for a cure.  If you see me and we’ve never met, please introduce yourself!  Cheers!

    Hi Jen! Just wanted to let you know that I will be there in spirit as you and your pack walk this Saturday! I SO wish I could join you, but silly me didn’t plan enough ahead and made a conflicting appointment. Hoping you feel loved and full of life and HOPE this weekend! (And I will be a stranger friend living vicariously through all that you choose to share from your Aussie adventure with your lovies!)
