I don’t know how many of you saw the interview with Katie on WKYT last night, but she is excited about the opportunity to give back to Richmond for the love and support she has felt during this tragedy. This isn’t just a 5K Race this is a chance to keep the memory of Daniel Ellis going strong for years to come. The foundation that will be funded by this race is going to be giving money to organizations around Richmond that Katie feels Daniel would have been drawn to.
Richmond, Madison County, and even the State of Kentucky need to get behind this and make it huge. Katie has been blown away by the support so far, but lets show her how we really feel. I can’t tell you how honored I am to have gotten to be part of this event in a small way. The logo you see above is my initial contribution to this race, but as I mentioned before I want Run Richmond to take care of the volunteer needs for the race. This should grow quickly and there are going to be a lot of needs. If you want to be part of the team that makes this happen send me a message and I will put you on my contact list for this event.
This isn’t just a 5K race for runners. If you are a walker please don’t be afraid to sign up. If you aren’t in a position to be able to run or walk there is a virtual race that you can sign up for. You will still get the shirt and will honor Daniel Ellis just the same.
The link below is the new story that WKYT did about this event. Watch this story and see if this doesn’t get you fired up to be involved.
