Thank you very much to everyone who came out last night for our 9th Annual B+ 5k Run/Walk. The weather was great, there was a lot of food, great music, inspiring B+ Heroes – especially our speaker, Courtney Martin – and some really fast runners (not me!). Congratulations to JPMorgan Chase for bringing out nearly 350 participants and to Team SavannahStrong who won the Largest Team and Top Fundraiser awards. Team SavannahStrong is in honor and memory of B+ Hero, Savannah Pauley.

And, we exceeded our fundraising goal!!!

There are too many people to thank, but I have to tip my cap to the over 75 volunteers who made last night’s event so well-organized and successful. Special kudos go out to Karen Diana, Head of Volunteers, and to my in-laws, Norm & Kay Ricker, and brother-in-law & sister-in-law Joe & Denise Gasz, for their hard work year after year in both the run-up to and day-of event.

There is still time for Delawareans to get your “B+ Conquer Childhood Cancer” license plate. Once we get 200 applications, DelDot will begin production. We’re a few dozen applications short. There is NO additional cost to you for this plate…we’re covering the $10 fee. Please email me at Joe@LiveLikeAndrew.org.

Can we get 50 applications by the 4th of July??? Let’s make it a reality.
