Run to Live

Run to Live

The holidays are special for families.  Whether it’s devouring pies that Grandma made, hunting at dawn with your dad or filling shopping carts with your new mother-in-law, you’re sure to make smile-inducing memories. Yet sometimes memories are all we have.David and Laura

This Thanksgiving, Grand Incentive’s Creative Art Director David remembered his mother, Katherine. Endearingly nicknamed Penny, this remarkable woman lost her battle to cancer in 2009. Embracing a spirit of giving, David and his wife, Laura, joined the Run to Live 5K for “Pennies in Heaven.” The inaugural run was hosted by The Cancer Support Community – Florida Suncoast.

Rallying support from his coworkers, friends and family, David and Laura were the fourth highest fundraiser, beating their goal of $200 with a total of $310. Weeks of jogging after work paid off, too. Both finished strong, Laura only strides in front of her husband.

Race ResultsDonations can still be made to provide free psychological and educational services for cancer patients and their loved ones at Pennies in Heaven’s donation team page.

Nothing allows for guilt-free indulgence like a 3.6-mile run! How do you plan to give back this holiday season?
