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.

The on-line registration for the race is up and running. The registration will be done through 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 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 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!!
