I'm running another 5K to "Break the Silence" on ovarian cancer
September 26th, 2009 @ 8:30am. Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine, TX. Yep, I'll be there!

I'm doing this again to support my wife and others who've had to endure ovarian cancer. If you can throw a few bucks towards this worthy cause, please use the link below:

Thank you! :hug:

4. You are so welcome
I used to do the 5K for the Komen Race for the Cure and may pick it up again, but the ovarian cancer run has more of a personal effect on my because of what my wife had to go through.

I'm sorry about the loss of your friend. Hang in there. :hug:
