Wear Blue: run to remember has been written up in Runner's Magazine, the LA Times, and soon to be featured on NPR and in the News Tribune. A documentary is in the works, and the folks at NIKE have taken a liking to them.
Run to remember helps spouses and soldiers process their grief of a troop killed in action through running. They meet every Saturday, 9 a.m. in DuPont's Powderworks Park.
Currently the group is preparing for the Seattle Rock and Roll marathon. Dhane Orthodontics in DuPont has stepped up to provide 3-4 buses to take participants and supporters to the June 25th race.
But more needs to be done. The group needs more folks to sign up to support the race. The group will man a mile of the course to wave flags, and hand out water and snacks to the racers.
They also are looking for a group to provide 150 lunches that day to the supporters. And, for the group's kick-off dinner June 24th, they need a cake to feed 200 people.
If you can help, please call Ken Swarner at (253) 584-1212. For more information about the group, see the following story HERE.
