Nick's LoveLife 5K Walk/ Run

I am a part of a foundation my family started in memory of my brother to raise money to help end childhood cancer. My brother was diagnosed with osteosarcoma when he was 16 years old. He fought it for 4 and a half years, he was a great guy and if you would have met him you would never have known he had a deadly disease. He loved life and didnt let cancer get in the way of his dreams. Unfortunately the lord had better plans for him and he left us here in March of 2010. The Nick Reamer Osteosarcoma Foundation was established in November 2010 and is a 501(c) non-profit organization. We host 3 main events each year, one in the spring (walking tacos stand at the garage sales in our neighborhood) in the summer (Nick's LoveLife 5K Walk/ Run) and one in the fall (Nickadeamous' Tricked Out Truck & Car Show) All of the profits raised at each event is used to either help support families with childhood cancers or is donated to Childrens Hospitals & Clinics of MN for research for childhood cancers.

In just a few weeks the Nick's LoveLife 5K Walk/ Run will be happening in Coon Rapids, MN. I realize not everyone reading is in the area but I just wanted to spread the word on the event and our foundation. Here's the details:
