accelerate the pace!

On Saturday our Eastside Chapter put on their second Accelerate the Pace race in Redmond, WA. Approximately 300 adults and children participated in the 10K, 5K and kids run. There were cheerleaders, a bouncy house, face painting, treats, balloon animals, vendor booths and more! To say that it was overwhelming to us to see so much energy and enthusiasm at 7:30am on a Saturday morning would be an understatement! Thank you to everyone who participated in this awesome event – your presence and support of Ben Towne Foundation through our Eastside Chapter means so much.

And special thanks to RPM Mortgage, Socius Law Group, Juniper Capital, Christie Law Group, Sara Miller of Windermere, Sunrise Identity, Willett Zevenbergen & Bennett, FiveLo, Orthodontics on the Plateau, Denise Novosel and Isagenix, Jeremy Olson of All State, Eastside Sports Rehabilitation, Expeditors, Blazing Bagels, Pink Bandanas Guild, barre 3, Clear Chiropractic, Karate West, Issaquah and Skyline Cheer Squads and more for supporting ATP!

I took a few photos of my own (sorry racers you were too fast for me), but you can check out Anthony May’s fantastic photos (like the one above) on our EC’s Facebook page. Here are a few of mine…

Last but not least to this amazing group of women and their families….your continued commitment, efforts, love and incredible support is truly changing the way we treat and cure kids from cancer. Thank you for being a huge part of Ben Towne Foundation! From watching you put on a garage sale in the pouring rain three years ago, to your first and second wine auction to this makes us feel so humbled. So from our family to yours – thank you, thank you, thank you. We are so grateful.
