Inspiring Hope Run

May 12, 2018 - 9:00am - Mukilteo, WA

Currently celebrating our 8th year, the Inspiring Hope Run was originally inspired by my personal love of running and my overwhelming need to give back to the community.  “Inspiring Hope” has very personal meaning to me.  Each of us has had something in our lives that has brought us to our knees and made us feel hopeless.  For me that was the unexpected death of my oldest son Sean.  He was barely 22 when a traffic accident changed my world forever. During the weeks and months that followed I felt hopeless in so many ways, but I was determined never to lose my Hope. My goal from the beginning was to learn to love with Sean’s loss gracefully.  Eleven years later I’d like to think I’m doing exactly that. Everyone facing a challenge needs that glimmer of HOPE and that’s exactly the goal of the Inspiring Hope Run – to give members of our community a way to do something when it feels like there’s nothing they can do.   

One hundred percent of the profits from this event benefit the Komen Foundation to help support quality care for current breast cancer patients while diligently searching for the cure to this monster.  Unfortunately nearly every person in our community has been touched by breast cancer either directly or indirectly.  This event is my way to make a difference in that fight.  And I need your help.

It takes money to put on these events and that’s where I’m counting on you.  Your sponsorship check will help purchase the items needed to produce a safe, well organized event for our runners with the goal of having all runner registration dollars go to the event charity.  If you would like your sponsorship check earmarked for a specific item like insurance, food, safety items or medals please indicate that on your payment.  I'm looking forward to working with you!
