It is nearing time again for the Crawl for Cancer in Kansas City. Mark your calendars for May 12. The Crawl for Cancer is becoming a nationally recognized fundraiser with similar events being held in cities around the country. The event benefits the American Cancer Society as well as many other local charities. I cannot begin to tell you how much fun we had at the "Crawl" last fall. By the end of the day, many of us were crawling! Jen really felt special being surrounded by 30 friends having a great time in support of her fight with cancer. I'd like to organize a group that will participate in the event in Jen's honor.
It goes without saying that participating without Jen will be difficult, but you can bet her spirit will be felt throughout the day. Let's put together a group that will honor Jen and have a damn good time while doing it. My motto is always "the more the merrier." At someone's suggestion, I'm going to contact the organizers and see if it will be possible for our teams to exclusively wear light blue and brown t-shirts - Jen's colors. Not only will we all be spotted from a mile away, but our shirts will match our bracelets!
Participation in the Crawl for Cancer is $50.00 per person. With the help of a few others, I'll collect registrations from everyone via Paypal or by check. We will plan to have our participants final by March 23rd so that we can postmark our entries by March 26th. I know this is past the deadline for the $5 per participant discount, but it will give everyone almost 3 full weeks to make your plans and get your entry fee to us. The entry fee includes all of the beer during the crawl, food and drink at the after party, and a commemorative T-shirt. Once we are all registered, we will coordinate a meeting place for our teams and possibly transportation for those wanting to ride to and from Westport together...maybe another Kool Nites Prison Bus (or two)???
