Susan G Komen Race for a Cure

The following is from Sarah
Friends family and supporters of Lynette~

I have formed a team for the Susan G Komen race in Grandville on September 25, 2010. The team is called TEAM BELL, and we will be raising money in Lynette's name to go towards a cure for breast cancer. I would LOVE to have the biggest team to enter the race! All you have to do is go to this site: and click on register now. Then click on Join an Existing Team. You should find TEAM BELL already formed- please join that team. You can get people to donate to our team to raise money. I ran this race last year and not only is it for a great cause, it is a lot of fun. They have tons of vendors, music, booths etc. that you can visit after the race. So whether you are a runner or not, whether you are personal friends with Lynette or not, whether you know someone who has had breast cancer or not, it is still a great cause! And you non-runners, don't despair! You can register for the 5K Walk. They also have divisions for kids and other runs in addition to the 5K, so bring the whole family!

I am also ordering t-shirts for race participants that you can purchase once I get them in. You do NOT have to purchase a shirt to be on TEAM BELL, but they will be for those who want one. They will have the Sayiwont motto on them, with RUN TEAM BELL on the front. The girl t-shirts will be white with the Sayiwont saying in turquoise and TEAM BELL in pink, and I am still working on a color scheme for the guy shirts.

I know you won't regret participating in this worthy cause! So dust off your running or walking shoes, and get in shape- you have approximately 4 months to get ready and to raise money!!!!! And please, forward this email around to as many people as you think would be interested!

Attached is the picture of the girl's shirt, but TEAM BELL will be added in pink below the Sayiwont RUN. Other Sayiwont gear can be found at:

I will contact those who register for TEAM BELL closer to race time to get a t-shirt order.

I am so glad that you did this. I was trying to get around to finding a race near here to do to help raise money & really wanted to do it for Lynette too. I will go to the site & register. Thanks again. Oh, I guess I need to start training then.

Thanks for posting. Will run for team Bell! Ran the Grandville race last year and it is an amazing experience. Even just walking the race is great. Off to go check out some new trainers for this fall!
