Hello KPeasey Nation,
We all enjoy the start of a New Year and the turn of the calendar page because it symbolically allows us to leave the negative in the year behind us. We are able to start fresh, begin anew and wipe clean the slate of anything and everything we choose to forget.
But what happens when 2016 was so incredible that we want it to continue? The ride has been so wonderful that we never want it to end? The strides we've made and the things we've accomplished are so huge that we want to go on and on and on?
Well, fear not. As much as we enjoyed 2016, there is not a doubt that 2017 will exceed it in every way. The year 2016 was merely a building block in the incredible organization we continue to build. The year 2016 was a phenomenal year that included a total of 53 athletes participating for KPF with 31 of them being brand new to the foundation. We hope to exceed such growth in the year ahead and are confident that this will happen.
We have a full docket of races in the year ahead beginning in on February 11 in Augusta with "Dr Seuss is on the Loose 5k" and continuing in March with The Charles Harris, which was my very first race in 2011 and in some ways was the catalyst for what we have become today.
Charles Harris will be followed by Publix, which will be bigger and even better than in past years with more KPF runners and more volunteers.
Be sure to look at our website for latest races and updates throughout the year. And start looking for our blog on the website as we begin to phase out this in 2017. You will find new and exciting blog topics related to the foundation, including several guest blogs through out the year.
As always we are so grateful for our sponsors, our many volunteers and especially for our athletes and their families.
As we move forward we promise to never forget you 2016, but look forward to seeing what your younger brother has in store.
Together We Wheel, Kyle
