Pajamas All Day 5K/10K - Spooky Edition Recap
Thank you for your SPOOKtacular support of the fourth annual Pajamas All Day 5K/10K - Spooky Edition! Because of you, over $165,000 was raised!
This event means so much to us for so many reasons. If you're new to the Move For Jenn family, you may not know that Jenn's first goal post-amputation was to run in a 5K, which she did just six months after surgery.
Once the Move For Jenn Foundation was born, Jenn knew that the first big event had to be a 5K. That was four years ago and the event has only grown since thanks to support from amazing people like you!
We do our best to be a light in the darkness that can be a cancer diagnosis. We hear time and time again that even though a diagnosis left someone feeling low, this incredible community always brings them back up.
Because of your support of Move For Jenn and events like PJAD, we were able to give TWO surprise grants!
Our first grant recipient was our friend, Marisa. To say we're lucky to know this woman is an understatement. Marisa is a synovial sarcoma warrior who traveled all the way from Texas to be part of the Pajamas All Day 5K/10K. We were so excited to surprise Marisa with a new activity foot before the race started Saturday morning. This new activity foot will help Marisa get back to hiking, HIIT classes, and more.
Our second grant recipient was Addison. We originally gave Addison the gift of movement in 2020 with a new socket and activity foot for her everyday active kid life. However, at the time, she was just shy of the height she needed to be in order to be fitted for a running blade.
Addison is one active little girl, so we knew she needed a running blade as soon as she was tall enough. We cannot wait to see all the amazing things that this unstoppable girl is going to continue to accomplish!
We already can't wait for year five of Pajamas All Day!
