    Michael Sandler's Fundraiser 5k Run: November 10th, 10 a.m., Waterfront (Salmon St. Fountain). Sanatan's Minimalist Monday group is hosting this run - which is his group's finale run, "Bare As You Dare" -and is doubling as a fundraiser for Michael Sandler's book, and medical fund. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Michael, or his story, or the reason for his book and fundraiser - familiarize yourself here! http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/breathe-love-an-amazing-healing-book-to-help-inspire-change-lives

    Thanks for posting this, Jen. Only a week to go!

    A little more info here. BTW, Fundraising for Michael Sandler is by donation for those that are willing and able, and while encouraged is certainly NOT required or expected. However, having a good time is!! I look forward to seeing you down there. See the map at this link: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5592421

    Copy of message sent to the Minimalist Monday group:

    Speaking of running free: Next Sunday, November 10th is the Summer/Fall Finale: The MM 5 Kilometer Fun-run. Regardless of ability, speed, run/walk, MM participation or footwear feel free to come down, bring a friend and have a great time running. As with all Minimalist Monday activities, it is totally free. However, we encourage anyone wishing to make a donation to Michael Sandler's medical fund as he recovers from his traumatic injury to do so. A powerful video about what happened is at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc8eisFK7iI

    Who: All are welcome!
    What: MM 5K Fun Run/Race
    When: Sunday November 10th. Race starts at 10AM. Arrive before 940 for preparations, course description
    Where: Start at the Salmon Street Springs Fountain. End at Waterfront Park and W Burnside. Map of the exact course here:

    Why: From just wanting to get some great exercise on a Sunday morning in our fair city, to wanting to test yourself to see where your running is at, to wanting to participate in a good cause, there are plenty of great reasons if you need one.
    If you are considering joining us shoot me a quick message with a yes, maybe or whatever so I can plan.
    Happy Running
    Sanatan
