Mike reported that we have 82 runners signed up. Registration was the best that it has ever been in terms of organization! We may get a few more sign ups and we are also looking for a couple more sponsors. Please see Mike if you have any questions. 
Kris had an opportunity at a work conference to pitch a charity project in a competition. She chose to share the Free to Be Me Project She won the small group contest and then had to compete in front of the whole conference against the other small group winners. She did an amazing job and won the competition. She won $3700 from all of the other attendees and then she herself donated $300, bringing the total commitment to $4,000! Way to go Kris!!!!
So our commitment to the Free to Be Me Project now stands at $11,000. We are confident that the funds raised from the Hustle Up The Hancock and the Rotary 5000 will help us to meet that goal!
