Calling All SparkBuddies and Beyond

Thursday, June 02, 2011

by now, I am sure that you have all heard about the tornadoes that have been striking all over the country. In my backyard one of the most deadly tornadoes in US history hit in Joplin, MO. Here is a story from Runner's World rwdaily.runnersworld.com
about the Boomtown Run in Joplin. Organizers have decided not to completely cancel this run and instead use the registration fees to cover costs incurred for the Run and the remaining amount will go to relief efforts. I am now a registered Half Marathon participant in the Boomtown Run! I invite all of you to register as well. If you are like me, you have heard the stories, and seen the pictures of the devastation, and wondered if there was something you could do to help. Now there is!!! Go to www.boomtownrun.com/ and register too!

I know the power of SparkPeople. Let's use some of that power to help a community that was, literally, ripped apart by this deadly tornado!
