I ran my first 5k of 2015 on March 14.  I plan to run 10 more 5k's throughout the year, at least, and since I also work fulltime, a friend suggested I start this to help pay the entry fees for my upcoming 5k's.  So far I have Running with the Cows May 9, Arrowhead 5k May 23, and the Glow Run 5k June 27.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I want to thank all of my supporters! I have already registered for 3 races and paid off my MRI bill. This will allow me to get a second much needed MRI so the doctor can see how much the tumor is shrinking! You all are so amazing!!
