Come Run With Us! – The Ava Brown Memorial 5K

Hello once again to all of you Virtusites out there!  I’ll keep this one short today (no, seriously).  In two weeks, on April, 13th, The Ava Brown Memorial 5K is being held here in Jefferson City, MO.

Ava Brown

For those of you who don’t know why this race is so near and dear to us, please go read this post right here.  Every time Spring rolls around, I go back and reread that post, and every time I read it, I break down and cry a little bit.  It was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever written.  You should also read all of the comments on that post to see how amazing our friends and families are.

Two years ago, Team Virtus raised over $1000.00 for this great event!  ***WARNING! – the previous link contains a photo of me half-naked.  You’ve been warned.***  While we aren’t doing the same type of fundraising this year, we’d still love to see you at the race.  If you can’t come out and run or walk but you’d still like to help us fight SIDS, you can donate here.

Rumor has it that Kage has been training for a 5K PR.  Will she get it at the Ava Brown 5K?  If you know Rage Kage, then you wouldn’t bet against her.  And the good news is, she’ll be in a new age group this year!  She will hit the big Five – Oh about a week before the race, so even if she misses her PR, she has a good shot at placing in the top three in her new age group. 🙂

So, we hope to see you out there in a couple of weeks.  I’ll be running for Ava and for my nephew Benji.  Will you join us?

  1. Well, it’ll be a new age group, but your math is a *little* off. Hopefully your PR predictions are more accurate. 🙂
