Last week, Mockingbird contributed to a small, but growing, 5K run/walk in support of the Colon Cancer Coalition.
This was my third year doing the race – the first year was with my son’s teacher who was fighting colon cancer. The most recent two years, Katie was not there. But Katie’s supporters were – wearing purple for Team Purple Power. For putting things in perspective . . . I’ve watched Katie’s young daughter grow up in annual snapshots at this race. This year, was the largest event yet and we raised close to $20,000 in support of colon cancer research.
Hug your kids and take care of your health.
