Betty’s 5K Fundraiser

So, I have a favor to ask of my (small audience of) readers/commenters/lurkers/whatever. It’s always awkward to ask people to donate money, but this is a cause that is near and dear to one of my close friends and therefore dear to me.

My friend/running buddy Lynn lost her mother to Scleroderma last year – there is no known cause or cure for this disease. Lynn has been working very hard with the help of the Scleroderma Foundation to host Betty’s 5K to honor her mother and raise money for the foundation for research. Here’s an article in the Greenville News about it, if you’re interested.

For local folks, the race it at Furman University on September 14th (race info in the the link), but if the race is not an option you can donate to the fundraiser as a non-participant. Right now, they are about halfway to a goal of $10,000 and with a little over a month to go, I would love to see them reach their goal. I don’t have anything to give away, but it would definitely mean a lot to Lynn if you were able and willing to donate to the cause, so please consider it.

Thanks for reading
