This is the race bib we hope to see in pictures posted to the Facebook event for Run to Remember. Don’t forget Instagram (#virtualruntoremember and #touchingyourheartblog) and Twitter #virtualruntoremember.+
You can find a PDF file here…Run to Remember 2013 Bib Word to print. There are two on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper so you can share with a friend. I plan to write a few names on my bib to commemorate and remember who I was walking for this particular year. Feel free to write or draw whatever you wish in the middle space of your race bib. Pin it to your shirt and take a picture to share with us on the FB page. If you aren’t a FB user, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

As we were beginning to work on the details for the Hug Your Kids and Wear Blue for Calvin’s Family Event to mark Calvin’s one year in Heaven, we started talking about the Virtual Run/Walk for Sherry Arnold that we were a part of last year and the event we did in conjunction with it to honor and remember loved ones gone too soon. That day touched our hearts in ways we cannot describe…it was just a simple thing to do but yet it was such an awesome way for our community to come together to remember our loved ones.
We were beyond thrilled to find out that there is indeed a 2nd Annual Run/Walk to honor Sherry to be held on Saturday, February 9 and immediately started making plans to be a part of that and to host another Run to Remember for our local communities.
So….we would like to invite you to join us in participating in the 2nd Annual Run for Sherry and our 2nd Annual Run to Remember (which is really a walk if you aren’t a runner). We will be meeting again this year at James Field (baseball diamond) in Bowman on Saturday, February 9th from 2pm to 3pm. We believe in keeping things as simple as possible, so we will start the event with a short prayer and moment of reflection (and a group picture of course). You can run, walk, bike, rollerblade…whatever!! This is a family-friendly event…bring your kids! You can go as many laps and for as long as you want. You can click to see the information for The Run For Sherry and print a running bib from their site. The picture at the top of this post is the awesome running bib that Robin has created for our Run to Remember. We will have some preprinted running bibs available the day of the event, but you can also head over to Robin Rae Photography and print a bib of your own.
If you are unable to join us in Bowman, ND…this is where the virtual part comes in!! You can join us no matter where you live!! Any time of the day!!! Just do what works for you!!
Robin has created a Run to Remember Facebook Event page for us all to come together in a community-based fashion to share our thoughts, names of loved ones you would like to honor and remember, etc. We would love for you to post pictures from your run/walk to that page so that we can all join in and share the day! To add a little fun, you can also post your pictures on Instagram with the hashtags #touchingyourheartblog or #virtualruntoremember. If you are a Twitter fan, use #virtualruntoremember.
If you have any questions, you can comment below or on the Facebook Event page, or email me at email@example.com
Please help us spread the word for this event….we realize it’s kind of short notice, but sometimes that works the best!!
Much love to you all and remember…
