Hey folks! Another year has passed and another Run the 1 is set to go off on Saturday, December 1st! Come join us again to run, to play, to celebrate, and to help the kids of Ubaka U Rwanda.

THE PLAN THUS FAR….

Our plans over the years have always adapted to different hurdles placed before us. It’s one of the things I love most about this event. All of us that come together, do so knowing that we all will have each other’s backs and figure out what we have to do to achieve our goals set forth. So the plan thus far is I (Sully) will run the fifty miles from Ragged Point, CA to Los Osos, CA. I suspect I will have many great friends joining me in different areas and/or running the whole track as well. Unlike the past, this year we will continue the celebration in Los Osos at the local Baywood Tavern. Donations will be accepted there, local entertainment, and wonderful folks will meet to enjoy the lovely place we live. Stay tuned for other details to come.

WE’RE STILL KICKIN’

I realize it may sound like we are slowing some of our efforts this year which is sort of true in regards to an after party. However, we still have plenty of other efforts in regards to supporting the kids and having a good time too.

The Glorified Gardeners will be missing from the after party this year but they will still be rocking on another day. On Thursday, November 29th, you can find them playing at the SLO Farmers Market! Come have a good time with us. There will be a table where you can find info on supporting the kids too and we will be playing for donations.

PALO ALTO

One of our greatest supporters and friend, Laura Palmer, will be throwing another Pre-run engagement in Menlo Park, CA on Novebmer 27th. Every year, more folks come, more money is raised, and the wonderful network of people over there get closer too. The best part is watching all of the kids growing up each year. We have been putting on little musical performances for years now. This year, the gang of kids have really upped their game and I can’t wait to listen and jam with them.

EYES AND EARS OPEN

That’s what I got for now. Runners, parties, music, good times, good folks, and charity for the kids. I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am that Run the 1 is continuing as such. This is our eighth year! Look forward to some more posts as December 1st gets closer. I am excited to add up all of the mileage from last year to everyone’s stats and to fill people in on how the kids are doing these days. Stay tuned!

Komera,

Sully
