Lise and Faith Memorial Run
|Saturday, August 18, 2012
Heritage Recreation Center
9010 128th Street
Puyallup, Washington 98373
On May 27, 2011, Lise Marie Palmer & her unborn baby, Faith, went for a run while on a family vacation. They were tragically hit by a car and killed instantly. Lise lived her life for God and her family; parents, Craig and Cathy, husband Ryan and sons Ray and Mac. Lise enjoyed running and living a healthly lifestyle. We honor her by doing this annual run, giving back as she always tried to do. Friends & family of the Macadangdang, Palmer and Brown's, thank you in advance for your support.
We invite all to join us on Saturday, August 18th. Run or walk because you love to, this is not a chip timed event. We will have a clock at the Start/Finish Line, and flaggers along the run course who can give you times. Unlike last year, times will not be posted. You will need to keep track of your own time. In addition to the 1K, 5K and 10K Walk/Run, we will have a Children's Fun Run. No fee for the Fun Run. We will have a face painting station for all children on site.
Audra Brown is married to Bobby Brown and mommy to three children; Mackenzie, Bobby, and Rylinn. Audra is currently fighting cancer and going through chemo treatments, standing strong to be cancer free. Audra blessed our boy's with her gift of meals and her time at our first run for Lise. We now want to give back to Audra. The proceeds of this walk/run will go to Audra and her family, to help with her many medical bills. We honor Audra with this run, which will also honor Lise and Faith.

June, 2012: Update on Audra
Audra's doctors have recently told her she will need a bone marrow transplant after she completes her chemo treatments. Audra's insurance will not cover this procedure. The doctor's will not begin the search for a matching donor until Audra has given them a $250,000 down payment. Please register for the run today, it may help save her life.
Key Bank Donation
You may also donate to the Audra Brown donation account at any Key Bank in Washington.
Puget Sound Blood Bank
Bone Marrow Donors:
Heritage Park on Run Day, 8:00 AM, the Puget Sound Blood Bank will be on site with volunteers from the Central Pierce Firefighters. Please stop by their table to be tested to see if you are a match with Audra! A quick simple swab test and you are off and running!
A site map of the run/walk trail will be posted a few weeks prior to the event. We will have flaggers along the trails at each turning point, but the best tip to remember is:
If in doubt, always take the trail to the right.
Run/Walk Rules: Safety on the trails
Heritage Park is a beautiful place to run/walk. At certain points the trails will narrow, please be aware of other people and your surroundings at all times. We ask that everyone be courteous to others and enjoy yourself. Be aware of where your children are at all times. We want this event to be fun and safe for everyone!
