Bellevue Beads at the Park 5K/ Fun Run at the Gathering

  • I just heard that there will be a 5/K sponsored by Beads of Courage on the Sunday morning of the Gathering.  I wanted to give you the full lowdown.  It looks like a lot of fun and will be a nice fundraiser for them.  Such a worthy group!  However, there is a conflict for me, due to the speakers starting at 9 am.  I am going to opt for what they call the "Sleep In and get the T-shirt category".  That way, I won't miss any speakers, but can still participate.  It's a win/win situation...even if I don't get the extra hours of sleep!  Read below for the details.  Hope you can attend.

  • Sunday in the Park with Beads of Courage, July 29th, 8:30 a.m.  Bellevue, WA during the Gathering.

    Additional Information
