WE ARE FAMILY.
When we were first approached by the George Wilson Jr. Scholarship Fund to help them host their first George Wilson Jr. Memorial 5K Fun Run and Walk, we didn't hesitate to jump in and help! We knew instantly we wanted to be a part of and support this event.
George Wilson Jr. is the late husband of Linda Rubenstein. Linda is a big part of the Fleet Feet family. Linda first took our No Boundaries 5K Training Program in June of 2010. As quickly as she embraced Fleet Feet, we embraced her. The next year Linda assistant coached that program and the next year coached it.
It's what she does. She loves helping and mentoring people and she has helped transform so many lives through all the programs she has been involved in.
If there was anything we could do for Linda, we would, and this was the perfect opportunity to step up and help.
However, it's bittersweet being involved.
We want to do everything we can to help Linda, it's just unfortunate the circumstances under which we get the opportunity to step in. Her love for George is so obvious when she talks about him. Maybe this small token will help the grieving process in some way.
We invite the entire Fleet Feet Family to please join us on Saturday, May 21st at 9:30AM.
Wear your wackiest socks or flip flops, favorite tutu and funkiest running gear and come out for a 5K fun run and walk to help support the
George Wilson Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund was established in George's memory to support needs-based University of Maryland students studying accounting/information technology.
