Going Global!

Overwhelmed. Grateful. Emotional.

P1110934

YOU and the power of social media have spread word about the virtual run for Sherry across the world. I am not exaggerating, even though I’ve been known to do that on a very rare occasion.

Every single time I think about people running across these United States and in Tokyo, Puerto Rico, Turkey (to name a few distant spots) where runners will unite in Sherry’s name, I get tears in my eyes and goose bumps from head to toe. Out of something tragic and horrific has come this powerful force of goodness and positive energy. We will make the earth move a bit on February 11 as we lace up our shoes and GO for Sherry.

Countless blogs have spread the story, and I have visited them all (I hope!). Runner’s World posted an article I wrote on their Other Voices blog today. The Sidney Herald will post the story about the virtual run tomorrow. I have talked to a few reporters who will report on the run on the local news in several Montana towns.

A run will happen in Sidney, Montana, Sherry’s home town, on February 11 and more information can be found HERE about this. A fitness center in Williston, North Dakota, (the town where the two suspects are being held) is holding a huge run and giving out Sherry’s running bibs.

We are just getting started. We still have about ten days to spread the word. Please remember that you do not need to RUN this thing. Walk, bike, rollerblade, skip backwards, do cartwheels - it really doesn’t matter. Just print out your bib, pin it on and get out there to honor Sherry. You can be like Bart Yasso who will be wearing his bib at the Donna 26.2 in Jacksonville!

For information about the run and to print your bib, go HERE.

A Facebook page for the run/walk has been set up HERE.

Thank you, thank you for all of your generous donations (see button on the right sidebar). If you would like, you can visit any Wells Fargo Bank to make a donation. Just go in and say you want to donate to the “Sherry Arnold Donation Fund.” It is just that easy. I have been in contact with Sherry’s husband and he expresses his extreme gratitude as well.

If you’re doing the virtual run, leave a comment telling me where.

If you are going with a group, leave that info as well in case someone who reads this wants to join you.

SUAR

For those in the Denver/Boulder/Longmont area, we’ll be meeting at Coot Lake (west side of the Boulder Reservoir, behind IBM on 63rd St) because that way we don’t have to worry about paying to park. Bring friends, family members, your pet pig, whoever! I’d like to start with a moment of silence for Sherry and her family, then start the run/walk together. Feel free to  go as far as you’d like and to fart if you want. We’ll start by making our way around the Reservoir heading south. More to come as the day gets closer.
