Run for Becca
There’s a charity run/walk called Becca’s Run that is coming up on Sat. Oct 7th in Silver Spring, and all proceeds benefit Special Love (the NPO that co-sponsers Camp Fantastic). It’s a 5K run or 2 mile walk It’s a little late in the registration so it’s into “late registration” phase. It costs $30 reg fees, and registration is all online at http://www.beccasrun.org. I think it starts around 8 or 8:30 and it’s over pretty quick, so you’ll still have your whole day ahead of you.
Just to give you a little background, Becca was a former Camp Fantastic camper who died of a brain tumor in 1997. Her family and friends created this run and have coordinated it every year since. This is the 10th Anniversary of the run, and some say it may be the last. If you want to read more about Becca, there was a great series written about her in the Post that you can access from the Becca’s Run/About Rebecca Lilly website.
