A sea of pink in Philadelphia as thousands gathered on Mother's Day at the 23rd Annual Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure. From hundreds of volunteers to sponsors, runners to walkers, fundraisers to participants – many made it a day of celebration and empowerment for all women.

 

This is just one run of many races to come since last weekend’s Broad Street Run.  Jenna Communications’ President, Jennifer Sherlock gives you a taste of her BSR experience and a preview of another race called Strides for Stroke that is also saving lives and raising awareness.  

 

 

Septa’s Broad Street Line is packed at 7 a.m. as runners prepare for the 10 miles from North to South Philly.  

 

 My friend Lauren Nickles and I are all stretched and ready to attack Broad Street.  

  This is just one mile in as a sea of runners get ready to pace themselves for the next nine miles to go!

 

 I finally finished with my buddy Marshall Harris. The Comcast SportsNet anchor ran 1:17 and I finished with my best time in nine years at 1:21. I hope to break 1:20 next year on my tenth year of running the race. Marshall hopes to break 1:15.  

 

Last but not least, run the Strides for Stroke 5K Sunday, June 9th at 8:30 am in Philadelphia to raise awareness for stroke- the number one cause of adult disabilities and number three cause of death.

 

All proceeds help guarantee the continued success of the Delaware Valley Stroke Council’s programs to educate people on stroke and advocate for cutting-edge stroke care at area hospitals.
