RUN KATELYN RUN!

So I've been wanting to make this BIG ANNOUNCEMENT for a few days! I'm VERY excited to share that my cousin, Katelyn, will be running The Boston Marathon for MS!!!!!!! Katelyn was selected to be a member of the Marathon Strides Against MS Marathon team. In order to participate in this event she not only has to run 26.2 miles (no biggie right!?) but she also has to raise $3,250. Katelyn has set a personal goal to raise $4,000! If she is going to go big she might as well go REALLY BIG right. Why stop at $3,250! So The Bean Team will be very busy this April w/ walking the Boston Walk on April 10th and then cheering Katelyn on at the Boston Marathon a week later. And we will be raising A LOT of money (hopefully starting this Friday night at my fundraiser)!
I'm so proud of Katelyn for taking on this personal goal all while helping to raise awareness and money for an organization so close to my heart.

I'm sure I'll be thanking Katelyn 1000 times between now and the big day but I'll start now. Thanks Katelyn!!!!

I'll be sure to keep you updated on her training and fundraising!
