Our fearless leader at Maplewood Middle School, Eric Mjolsness, was recently diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer called Mantle Cell Lymphoma. If you know Eric, you know he is passionate about health and wellness, so to support Eric in his fight against Mantle Cell Lymphoma, we are honoring him and his passion with a walk-run 5k. The 5k will take place on May 22nd at 10 a.m. We will start and end at the Maplewood Community Center (2100 White Bear Ave, Maplewood, MN, 55109) , running the Gateway Trail. This is a family friendly event! This event will take place rain or shine, but in case of cancellation based on extreme weather, no refunds will be issued due to cost associated with hosting the event. We are using this as a mechanism for registration. Cost of the race is $25, which includes a t-shirt. Race day registration will be $30 (not guaranteed a t-shirt). In order to ensure you receive a t-shirt in the correct size, please register by May 1st. Please put your t-shirt size in the comments or email us at [email redacted]. All proceeds will go to "Be The Match," an organization that helps individuals find their life-saving marrow donors.
If you are unable to attend but would still like to donate to the cause, please feel free to do so here! Thanks for joining us and supporting Eric and his family on this journey! If you have any questions, please reach out to Alysha and Ashley at [email redacted].
