I am running the Colon Screening For Life 5k in Evansville on June 13 at 8:00am. This race is very near and dear to my heart as I ran it 2 years ago in honor of Pablo. (And last year with another friend of mine battling colon cancer right now.) Pablo & I had plans to run this race together someday, so I know he will be with me as I run it this year. I created a team called "Pablo's Warriors" to run/walk together this year. I am hoping to get as many walkers and runners to register and run with me and my family. It is only 3.1 miles and even if you aren't a "runner" you can walk the race. Let's all show our support for colon cancer awareness! If you are signed up by June 9th the cost is $25. After that it is $30. There is also a kids dash for $5 and a 1 mile walk for $25.
You can register online at
When you register you need to make sure you sign up under Pablo's Warriors. There is an award for largest team. Not that I care about winning the award, but how awesome would it be to have a HUGE team in memory of Pablo?! Let's show him how much we love him and go out and help raise awareness for colon cancer!!!
Also, I am selling shirts so that we all can wear them for the race. This is the shirt I will be wearing for the race and I hope all of you will be too! The shirt can also be bought just to have and wear even if you aren't able to make the 5k. A percentage of each shirt sold will go into the Pablo Valadez Scholarship Fund!! (or you can always make any amount donation to his fund) He had a passion for nursing and helping others, so by buying a shirt you can help students go into nursing or the medical field.
The shirts will be:
$12 for a unisex blue T-shirt with white writing.
$18 for a woman's razorback tank top. (Same as T-shirt)
$20 for a dri-fit shirt (gray with blue writing)
(Anything bigger then an Xl will be $3 extra)
