Athletic Republic Awareness Run-MN

Post by prestonsmama » Wed Mar 27, 2013 6:45 pm

Hi everyone!
Just thought I'd let you know that there is an annual 5K/Half Marathon in Fergus Falls, MN this summer. It's on Saturday, June 1st 2013. Money raised from the walk/run goes to our new local cancer center, but this year they decided to make it an Awareness Run. They asked community members to come up with a cause that's something different and not well known. So amongst other groups also chosen, we have a Brachial Plexus Injury group. I am so excited! I want this to be the best, biggest and most prominent group out there!
If anyone has ideas they'd like to share, you can email me at carlyraes@hotmail.com
Or...if anyone wants to make a trip to beautiful Fergus Falls, MN, we'd love to have you join us for the run!

Injury Description, Date, extent, surgical intervention etc: LOBPI. I am 77 yrs old and never had a name for my injuries until 2004 when I found UBPN at age 66.

My injuries are: LOBPI on upper body and Cerebrael Palsy on the lower left extremities. The only intervention I've had is a tendon transplant from my left leg to my left foot to enable flexing t age 24 in 1962. Before that, my foot would freeze without notice on the side when wearing heels AND I always did wear them at work "to fit in" I also stuttered until around age 18-19...just outgrew it...no therapy for it. Also suffered from very very low self esteem; severe Depression and Anxiety attacks started at menopause. I stuffed emotions and over-compensated in every thing I did to "fit in" and be "invisible". My injuries were Never addressed or talked about until age 66. I am a late bloomer!!!!!

I welcome any and all questions about "My Journey".
There is NO SUCH THING AS A DUMB QUESTION.

Great News! I'm not much of a runner. However, everyone whom runs, enjoy your day. BPI still needs more awareness!
