What a great Fall week it has been. There are several things going on this weekend that you should check out. One very important thing that the Smarty Pants team would like to highlight is the 2nd Annual LungStrong 15k/5k this Saturday. We have formed Team Jen Bunich in memory of our dear friend. We are running/walking to raise awareness and funds to fight lung cancer. Jen B. didn’t have the chance to fight and it is up to us, her friends to get out there to help find a cure to keep this from happening to other women and men in their prime.
We would like to invite you all to join us this Saturday at RaceWorld USA in Lake Norman as we participate in LungStrong. The Run/Walk event is open to all participants who seek a challenge, runner-friendly course or just a fun and healthy way to support Lung Cancer awareness. The 5k is baby jogger friendly. The event features Live Music, a Wall of Honor, Massages, Prizes, Inflatables for the kids and much, much more. Go to LungStrong to sign up and Join Team Jen Bunich.
