“Run for the Law”

Bill West/Holly Lidey

  • We are only 12 days away!
  • I have been taunting us to get at least 1,000 participants at our Run/Walk. I have been told that I am not being realistic. As a personal favor, I am asking you to help me achieve 1,000 participants.
  • We are at 170 registered/1000=


  • WE ARE DOING IT! Please register tonight at
  • Club Northwest will be putting on a promotional event called “14 Days to your first 5K!”  This will begin March 1 and go until March 14th.  They will teach you how to get prepared for your first 5K in 2 weeks.  Please sign up for that at Club Northwest if you are a member and are interested!
  • Our response to the SWAG bags has been good but we are still looking for items to put into our swag bags for the runners.  If you know of a business that may be able to donate an item: inspirational plastic bracelets, pencils, water bottles, key chains, etc.! It’s a great way to promote your business!!!
  • We are also encouraging businesses to help our event by offering to pay the registration fee for their employees. Challenge other businesses with this offer! Thus far Evergreen FederalSouthern Oregon Sanitation and Roux 26 have all stepped up!
  • T-SHIRTS Cost of the shirts: Adults $13.50 Kids $12.00

  • FACEBOOK! Please share this event!
  • The Kid’s Dash” will start at 8:30 AMand it will be completed before the other races which begin at 8:40 AM, so that if parents want to run, Kidzone will be letting member’s kids in free during the 10K/5K on race day and will only charge $3.50 for non-member kids!
  • Please do not forget, this is YOUR AWARENESS RUN! If you have an idea, please let Bill or Holly know!!! Come up with an idea and RUN with it!
  • WE STILL NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER! This would be a great opportunity for an Amateur photographer to set up shop, help us and yourself out. You can make this a great business venture! Please e-mail Holly Lidey
