Conquer Cancer Run

Posted: Updated:


Are you training for the 7th Annual Brenda Ladun Conquer Cancer Run?

These cold mornings I meet my friend before the sun rises and run.

It's dark, it's cold and I'm sleepy. But I want to be ready for the big race.

The cold makes my feet feel sluggish.

But it's just one step in front of the other, and I'm moving. As I pass mailbox after mailbox... I feel the life start to come back into my feet and my body. By the time the sun starts to rise, I'm feeling awake....

 It's the dawn of a new day and the possibilities are endless! It's also the start of a new year and hopes are high that this will be the best year yet. It's another Conquer Cancer Run, and volunteers are energetic and ready to raise money to fight a killer.

Today I prayed that the money raised in this race will help us find a cure! I want to spare others from the ravages of the disease and spare families the heartache cancer can bring. Yes the dawning of another Conquer Cancer Run..... To raise money to find a cure, to help people get in shape, to encourage others, and support each other to defeat a dreaded disease.

At the race expect a lot of fun and free food! Don't be afraid to try a mile or maybe 5. If running isn't your thing, just come out to cheer!

See you at the race!
