Save the Date: May 14

I've got exciting news! Frisco is hosting a Head for the Cure 5K, with proceeds benefitting the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

I've been asked to organize a team in memory of Steve. What a great opportunity to:
1. Raise money to fight brain tumors
2. Pull together folks who love Steve and want to honor his memory
3. Continue the tradition of the Run for Steve team
4. Support families currently praying for a cure

Here are the details on the race.

What: Head for the Cure 5K North Texas
When: 8 a.m. Saturday, May 14
Where: Frisco Square (at Main Street and the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco)
Cost: $22 if you're a member of Run for Steve ($32 if you register after April 23)

What can you do?
1. Register for the 5K. Not a runner? That's OK! You can walk it. There will be lots of walkers. Click here to register. Be sure to choose the team option, and choose the Run for Steve Damm team.

2. Can't be there for the race but want to help? You can donate money to Head for the Cure. Click here for the Run for Steve fundraising page.

I'm really excited about this race and hope that we have a great, big Run for Steve team. (Katie would ask that it be a "hunormous" team.)

We will wear the gray Run for Steve shirts from 2009. If you don't have one, no worries -- you'll have an opportunity soon to order your own.

E-mail me with questions. And check out the Facebook page on the Frisco race. Thank you!

Thank you Stevie and Brandon for sharing with us your journey of faith, courage and strength as you battle brain cancer. You both are an inspiration!

We are excited to run alongside with you in the Head for the Cure 5k - North Texas race on May 14th in downtown Frisco, TX as we work together to defeat brain cancer step by step.
