STARmazing Race

9 May

Lucky13’ers, I want to tell you about an amazing….no, a STARmazing…event that is coming up in the Boston area that benefits a GREAT organization called the Starlight Foundation of New England.

Starlight Foundation provides entertainment and education activities for kids and families in the hospital and in the community to help ease their pain and take their mind off of what they go through each day because of their illness.  While doctors work to treat the kids, the folks at Starlight work to lift their spirits and help them have fun and just “be kids.” 🙂  They give kids struggling with serious illness experiences such as a first Red Sox game, a live musical, going to a rodeo, or even the prom!  Services are 100% made possible by donor and community support, which is why events are so important to the organization.  The STARmazing Race is also HUGE for Starlight because all of the proceeds directly benefit children struggling with chronic and life-threatening illness right here in the Boston area!

The STARmazing Race is on Saturday, June 16, 2012 from 11:30a.m. – 3:30p.m.  It is an urban scavenger hunt that sends racers on an adventure throughout Boston, following clues and completing crazy challenges!  [get your FITNESS on while supporting a great cause and having fun with friends!!!]  I hope you’ll join me in this race and invite your friends to do the same!!!

It is $50 per racer and you can race in teams of 2, 3, or 4. Registration gets you entry into the event, a swag bag, breakfast at the start line, and food at the finish line celebration at Game On! Fenway. We award prizes for the top three finishers and other silly prizes for best dressed, most team spirit, and more 🙂

RED BANDANA RUN CONTEST by Lucky13Fitness!!!!!
This year I am participating in the Red Bandana Run honoring Welles Remy Crowther- the late brother of my best friend Paige.  Paige lost her 24-year old brother Welles on September 11, 2001. He was an equities trader in Tower 2, but a trained volunteer firefighter in his home town of Upper Nyack, NY. Having saved an estimated 18 people, he became known as the Man in the Red Bandanna and his story continues to spread! In 2006, he became the FIRST citizen to be posthumously made an honorary member of the FDNY. It was certainly a tragedy and the worst thing that could happen to a family, but Paige and her family are trying to turn the circumstances around and do something outstanding to honor him.
A few years back, they established the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust to raise money for youth organizations across the country, and now around the world. Six years ago, they held the first Red Bandanna 5k Run/Walk which has turned out to be the largest annual fundraiser, by far. It is a little over 3 mile walk/run at the Campus Loop around Boston College – where her late brother, Welles (Class of ’99), her sister, Honor (Class of ’01), and she (Class of ’06) all completed their undergrad. Go Eagles!
This year the race is taking place at 9a.m. on Saturday, October 15th, 2011 with registration starting at 7:30a.m. at Lyons Hall, Boston College.
Last year’s event raised nearly $15,000!! This year’s hope is to hit $20,000…
I am writing to encourage all who can attend, and want to run or walk to show your support, to register to do so through www.redbandannarun.com. For those of you in other states who cannot attend the race, I encourage you to donate to this cause, also possible through that site or my fundraiser page.  After registering or donating, email me at lucky13fitness@gmail.com.  Title the email “Red Bandana Run Contest”, and include your full name and contact information in the body of the email.  On October 16th (the day after the race), I will draw one winner who will receive 3 one-hour personal training sessions with me!!  SO, act now- register to run or make a donation and then email me!! No donation is too small and ALL support is deeply appreciated by me, Paige, the Crowther family, and the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust!   Support a GREAT cause and enter for the chance to win!!
