Event of the Week: Run for a dream

Hi girls,

I hope everyone had a pleasant Easter/Passover weekend! Great job to all the runners who made it out for the Scotland 10K despite the downpour of rain. This week's event was sent to me by our runner friend, Elena. It is a small race in river side park, which is great for those of us that like running with less than 2000 people and this race is for a good cause. So without further ado...

Organizers: Lend-a-hand India
What: 2nd annual 5K run/walk
Where: Riverside Park, New York City (enter at 116th street and Riverside Drive)
When: Sun, April 19, 2009. Registration at 9:30am. Race begins 10:00am.
Registration fee: $10 until April 14 and $15 thereafter

You can register for 10 dollars right now online through pay pal. Jill will be out there running and would like to meet any of you bloggers who may be running. Just look for her in the black visor and red TRD shirt.

This group also has a team that does marathon fundraising and you can read more info about it on the site by clicking the Event of the week for the link.
