Always For Kate

Update 10/6/2019 - Team Always for Kate is currently in 8th place with a total nearing $15,000 !!.  As a reward for the tremendous fundraising effort from all of you, we are entitled to a team tent. We will be flying our Team Kate banner and there will be plenty of us sporting our lime green shirts. Please remember to wear yours on Race Day! We will have water and some snacks  & fruit to share.  I would love to have a team photo so please gather at the Always for Kate Team Tent at around 9:30am.

As a participant you will receive a National Brain Tumor Society T shirt. I have requested that all Tshirts, Incentive gifts and Race Bibs be boxed up as a team and available at our Team Tent. There is NO NEED to go to the Registration tent. If you are running, please ensure you leave plenty of time to get your race bibs from me.
