Winning the Race!

September 6, 2011

Leading the Race!

“Stay off the grass!” Those four words became second nature to me last weekend at the “K,” where we rallied together for a 5K in support of Variety, the Children’s Charity. The only thing that compares to The Royals’ dedication to keeping an immaculate field is the commitment of the nearly 2,000 runners, walkers and strollers who came out bright and early to support a cause near and dear to my heart: helping children. Proceeds from the 5K will benefit Variety, which helps Greater KC kids with disabilities to stay on the move with specialized equipment, such as vans with lifts, adaptive bicycles, wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and more. What a great place Kansas City is! We were presented with a check for $50,000 for the kiddos! Thanks to all who came out and sweated the race with us. Stay tuned for more fun events with Young Variety.

Check presentation!!!

Swim, Bike, Run

July 25, 2011

ladies in pink!!!!

As I sit here comfortably in my air conditioned office; I flirt with the idea of hitting the outdoors. Now, I enjoy a good sweat in my Pilates class, but taking that outside is another story. Whew! This Saturday, July 30th is the annual WIN for KC Triathlon at Sailboat Cove Park on Smithville Lake, in Smithville, Missouri. The race will begin at 7:30am and consist of a 500 meter swim, 10 mile bike and 5K run. I am excited to be a sponsor and cheer on the thousands of girls and women participating in this run! I will be their bright & early with my game face on (and sunscreen)! At the end of the race, there will be an Awards Ceremony to honor the participants of the race and we’ll be giving away another Girlfriend Getaway. For you swimmers, bikers and runners out there – here’s a few hot spots in town to do just that: Shawnee Mission Park Lake (swim, bike, run), Tomahawk Creek Trail (run, bike), Overland Park Arboretum (run, bike.) Can you think of any other good places to go?

Touch A Truck

July 18, 2011

sorry !!!!


BEEP BEEP! Ever dreamt of riding a combine, or honking the horn of a fire truck or perhaps just writing on your parent’s car? Yesterday would’ve been your day! Sunday at the Overland Park Convention Center, families celebrated the second annual Touch-a-truck event; where kids were entertained up to their eyeballs with trucks, tractors, Funky Mama and face painting! I was happy to be a presenting sponsor, allowing kids to check out some of our finest automobiles and simply just have fun!! A personal highlight of the day … seeing the Nissan Cube from start to finish after a long day of children’s artwork (erasable sharpees, of course)!


Best part … Free to the public with just (2) non-perishable food donations to Harvesters. Check out more pics on my flickr account! And join us next year!
