BLOOMSDAY IS SUNDAY... BUT TOMORROW.... IT'S ALL ABOUT
KXLY 4'S CAITI CURREY IS LIVE ON THE SKYDECK... SHE
HAS MORE DETAILS ON THE JUNIOR BLOOMSDAY AND MARMOT
NADINE MANY OF THE KIDS AT THE TRADE SHOW I SPOKE
WITH ARE FIRED UP FOR JUNIOR BLOOMSDAY...
FOR BOTH THE RACE... AND A GOOD CAUSE.
OVER 130 KIDS ARE GEARING UP FOR THE SECOND ANNUAL
This is my first year doing it... i'm excited.
JUNIOR BLOOMSDAY IS A ONE MILE TIMED RACE...
for third and fourth graders and they take super fast
THE IDEA OF JUNIOR BLOOMSDAY IS TO GET CHILDREN EXCITED
we have the Marmot March for the second grade and
younger kids so this is a timed race for third and
fourth graders to get them in the spirit of what bloomsday
is all about.
THE RACE DOES MORE THAN THAT... IT ALSO TEACHES KIDS
THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING BACK... TO KIDS THEIR OWN
We collect shoe for souls for youth, gently used running
shoes for kids in need.
SOLES FOR YOUTH COLLECTS SHOES FOR LOCAL CHILDREN
IN GRADES FIRST THROUGH SIXTH.
some kids were running in flip flops or shoes that
were to small. And we talked about what we could do
for them and what we could do for them and the idea
for soles for youth was born
IN THE YEAR THE ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN AROUND... THEY'VE
COLLECTED NEARLY 200 SHOES.
There is always a reason to act locally and this is
a great group, a great way to donate for kids. these
kids love to run, they're fantastic little runners
and all they need is a better pair of shoes to run
THE CAUSE IS CLOSE TO THIS MOMS HEART... WHO HAS TWO
FANTASTIC LITTLE RUNNERS HERSELF...
THEY'LL BE RUNNING IN BOTH JUNIOR BLOOMSDAY AND BIG
RUN ON SUNDAY...
WHICH AT THIS POINT HAS HER DAUGHTER RILEY A LITTLE
NERVOUS FOR ONE IMPORTANT PART....
Trying to finish the race at least. trying to finish
it in one day!
YOU CAN DONATE GENTLY USED CHILDRENS SHOES AT THE
TRADE SHOW... OR JUNIOR BLOOMSDAY...
WE WILL ALSO HAVE MORE INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN
DONATE AT KXLY.COM
AND RILEY... WE WANT TO WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK
IN BOTH RACES!
