7th Annual Ragnar Relay Napa Valley Run
To my donors, my donation-hustlers (YOU know who you are!), my uber-runners (and those who just LOOK good in colorful tights), my wayward (but never lost) runners, my Gen-Y navigators and my elder map readers, my most inspiring team of Crush’ed ..to my friends, YOU have made this all possible!
THANK YOU to all who participate in the annual Relay Run in honor of Christine A Geehrer! In my post-relay daze (did I really stay up for 35 hours straight?). When we started this incredible journey of creating a $26,200 medical scholarship in honor of Chris, I had no idea it would take on a life of its own. Team We Run 2 inspire just finished its sixth relay race fundraiser – the Ragnar Relay Napa Valley and we are now two-thirds of the way toward raising the funds for the largest medical scholarship of its kind in the U.S and for a UCSF Medical School student.
To have our CAGIM recipients carrying the flag across the finish line with the whole team, with family, and every donor, behind us was the culmination of all of our hard work. Each of our recipients will become extraordinary doctors and, because of your help, will touch the lives of many others. I know Christine was cheering when her motley crew of would-be athletes crossed the finish line, and is smiling with pride that she pushed us all to do something crazy for such a good cause — some of us running for the first time for such a distance, let alone overnight.
Your contribution, as a runner, as a donor, to this scholarship helped Christine’s friends and family turn our grief into action. Together, we will inspire others to do the same… pushing envelopes, crushing obstacles and changing lives … one dollar, one challenge, one life at a time.
