Race For Hope - May 5, 2013 - David's Team is Up and Running!

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest
Many of us have made the trip to Washington, DC the past few years to participate as members of David's Team in the Race For Hope. Many who haven't been able to be there have supported the team with donations... we have pushed him to the number one fundraising team the past four years.

Now it's time to think about the Race For Hope 2013.

David has set up his page HERE.

David Cook's Team for a Cure

Hey everyone,


Can't believe it's already that time again but I'm honored to be involved, for the 5th year, with the Race For Hope DC 5K! Can't wait to get out there to support an amazing cause, and to see all of you there supporting, as well! We have been the top fundraising team for the last four years, and with your help, we can do it again! So please, donate, and come participate on May 5th in our nation's capital as we all get five kilometers closer to a cure!



Thanks!

David


I encourage everyone who can make the trip to go. It's an unbelievable and moving experience. Words cannot describe it, and thinking back, I get chills just remembering standing there watching David lead the survivors to the starting line.

If you can't make the trip, I encourage you to give whatever you can. Proceeds benefit ABC2 and the National Brain Tumor Society, two great organizations that work tirelessly to find a cure for this horrible disease.

I would also remind you that Dave's birthday is coming up on December 20th. For the past few years, fans have made a donation to his page on his birthday. This is his 30th birthday, so a $30 donation to his team on that day would be a great gift... or any amount you can give. Just a reminder for those who would like to recognize David on his birthday. This is his special charity, very dear to his heart for obvious reasons.

Who's planning on going? I know I am - the days off are already marked on my work calendar. Here's the place to discuss and plan. Many of us have met up there in the past, and it would be great to spend time with our online friends again this year!

Ashley, I hope you can make it next year. It's always the same time (first Sunday in May) so try to leave that time open for 2013.

Viv, it would be awesome if you could come! I know that's a long trip for you, though.

I really really really hope David will still have a team for many years to come so I can cross this off my bucket list one day.

I can't believe I didn't even think of saving money for this. It will drain me dry to my last penny but I shall do that.

I think we all were a bit teary eyed when we had to say goodbye, Tricia! That was SUCH a fun weekend.

Anyone else think we need to go back to a certain restaurant this year? Or do you think they'll lock the door if they see us coming? ROFLOL

Thanks Stace! I actually had one today- a 3.5 hour, cumulative Comparative Anatomy final. My brain is ready to explode! Razz

And as far as that restaurant goes...they *might* have new rule in place that requires all patrons to remain in their seats for the duration of their meal. Wink I was certainly teary-eyed when I left that place...but not from sadness! Omg, I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard. My abs hurt just thinking about it again! ROFLOL

I just made a donation to Dave for his birthday, and plan to set up my personal team member page over the holidays.

It is a wonderful way to do something David will really appreciate for his birthday, so if you can donate something, please do. And if you can't do it today, you can always do it later... you have a place to leave a message for him, so you can always wish him a belated happy birthday if you need to.

Where is everyone planning to stay? I've been doing some price comparisons for hotels, It's almost double the price I paid last year for a downtown hotel.

We're probably staying at the same place we did last year. Can't remember the name of it right now, but it was right by Reagan National airport. The metro stop was right there so it was quick and easy to get into the city. Didn't take long either. We bought all day ride passes for the days we were ther, and then we didn't have to worry about having enough money on our metro cards. It was very nice, and so much cheaper than downtown. So odds are that's what we'll do again.

Soo...there's a possibility I MAY be at the Race for Hope myself this year. Jump

Talked with my mother, who wants to take me on a vacation this spring [haven't had a real one since my sister was married August 2009]. She mentioned wanting to visit my cousin, who lives in Washington, DC. At first, she wanted to go during the Cherry Blossom Festival [late March-early April], but I told her that I was REALLY busy at work then, soo...I suggested R4H. She said that sounds OK.

I'll let you know

Important David Cook's Team for a Cure Update! Team members, you all received this information via email just now.

If you haven't registered for David's Team yet, it is time to get on board so you don't miss out on these exciting things to come! Join Now: http://soc.li/44WYanG

Fan Event - Saturday, May 4th:
This year we are planning a David Cook fan event on Saturday, May 4th. We are still finalizing the exact time and location, but for travel purposes you should plan to be in town in time for an event as early as noon on Saturday. I know many of you have been needing to book your airfare and hotels, so hopefully this will help you make plans. This year we will not be having a concert, but David Cook will be at the event we are planning. As soon as more details are finalized I will make sure our team is the first to know and will have first access to tickets, etc! We appreciate the work you do every year for the Race for Hope!

David Cook Designed Team T-Shirt:
This year David will personally design a David Cook Team for a Cure T-Shirt for us to wear on Race Day! As soon as the final design is ready we will have the shirt available online for everyone to purchase. This will mean that our Virtual Participants will have access from all over the world to have this special team shirt! Stay tuned!

I hope this helps build some excitement to keep up our great team momentum! Keep doing the great work you are all doing and I will be in touch with more information as soon as I can.
