On Thanksgiving, my AWESOME running group buddy, Tansy, decided that it was time that we help those people back east who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. So for the past 2 1/2 weeks, we all have pulled together to put on a Hurricane Hustle 5k to be held on Thanksgiving Morning!
We teamed up with the American Red Cross and ALL money would be donated directly to them to help those back east. We also took donations for hygiene kits as well.
I was thinking that we might have about 100 people. WOW, to our surprise, we had almost 300! We raised around $1,600 and had quite a few complete hygiene kits also. Many hands can ease anothers burden.
We were so successful, that we are thinking of making this an annual event. Picking a different charity each year!
I LOVE MY NERC's!
