T-minus 1 month

that's right folks. get out your running shoes - dust 'em off if you have to (hint, hint rob). pull out the Nike shorts and pump up the tires on the jogging stroller...
the Brain Injury 5K is 1 month from today!!

We REALLY want you all to join us (unless you are far more ambitious running the Ogden Marathon - but really, isn't this a better cause??). SO below are some (fairly) simply directions to register. We would love to have you register early so we can get good estimations for products needed at the race. Also, bring a few dollars with you this year for the raffle - We already have some great prizes including 2 Southwest Airline vouchers (thanks Ty!), various gift cards, hotel nights, and tickets to events around the city, and we plan to get more fun things over the next month.

Lastly, the race is still in need of sponsorship. If you or someone you know wants to sponsor and get your company logo on the shirt, you can do so for as little as $250! (and it's tax deductible). If you are interested, contact meghan or suz or leave a comment here and we'll get ahold of you.

We are all getting very excited for the race, especially Charlie. He has been working out, doing his exercises and plans to roll way more than the half lap he did last year (if we can find someone else to push him besides his dad with an "athletic" build)! He can't wait to see (but maybe not hear) some of the old friends he met last year at the race.

RACE REGISTRATION:
The on-line registration for the race is up and running. The registration will be done through Active.com this year so will need to create an account if you don't already have one. You can join the Taking Steps for Charlie Steps team by following this link http://www.active.com/page/Event_Details.htm?event_id=1717704&assetId=56718d1a-5018-4db7-bb63-40a9341a6818 and clicking on the register now button on the top right hand corner of the page. You will then need to click on "team registration", choose Charlie's team (there is not a password), and check all the boxes for the waivers and such.

The next page is all about your name, address, and shirt size. Ignore all the active.com stuff unless you really want to order a bunch of magazines. When you get to the question about how you found out about the race-click 'other' and fill in the blank.

The next page will process your payment and print your receipt and VOILA! You are done. if you prefer to register over the phone call 801-484-2240.

Can't wait to see you all in a month!!

Brett and I are still deciding what to do for our anniversary (that day), but may end up registering... any chance you could post another reminder the week before May 9th? I'm afraid I'll forget. Thanks!

I did not know to register for a team! Sorry to be so dumb! My daughter and I just signed up. Please count us in on Charlie's team or let me know how to change it. We are looking forward to seeing Charlie!

Contact Glen at Wasatch Running Center in Sandy, UT - wasatchrunning@earthlink.net. I am sure they would love to help sponsor the race - in some form. Good luck!

Trish and John said...

Again...we so wish we could be there but doctors orders prohibit us to travel. Boo... We'll be there in spirit anyhow. Love you all and especially you Coop!

Okay, now that I live here I really want to do this...I'm going to figure out how to get myself registered!!! Count me in, I'm excited!!!

Megan and Alyvia said...

Okay, I am officially registered! Did I mention that I don't run? at all. haha! But I couldn't pass this up for Charlie, so I will be there with Livie...maybe not running, but walking...or maybe even crawling. (;

Hi my name is Natalie Hoch. I have been following your blog since your story was aired on the news last year. I have been so touched by your strength and Charlie is amazing. My husbands work (Varsity Contractors) would be willing to be a sponsor. Please contact him or myself at home 801-280-4638 or his cell number 801-419-3181.

Thanks you are an inspiration to us all!
