Good morning everyone!
Great news. Missy has raised $1,800 and is more than half way to her fundraising goal “Running Falmouth for Jeff.”
Melissa will honor her brother’s memory by returning to Cape Cod to run the Falmouth Road Race on August 11, 2013.
She is striving to raise $3,000 for The Jeff Katon Scholarship Foundation, which provides annual scholarship opportunities to the youth of the Hilton Head Island community that Jeff called home.

The Falmouth Road Race is only 10 days away and we need to raise an additional $1,200. Any and all contributions are deeply appreciated.
This morning Missy started a Facebook conversation with friends and provided this update:
My training is going great;) I logged 6.5 miles Sat, 7miles Sun & another 5.5 miles last night…I’m ready & really excited about it to be honest! I have run in quite a few races this past year, but this one is the closest to my heart…doing anything to honor Jeff is a privilege;)
