It's time to get ! Nick's Warriors are out in full force in two major events:

We believe this event has already sold out. There is a team hosted by ESF Dream Camp out of Bryn Mawr, PA. They are actively training and raising money through pledges (go to If you have any questions or would like to come and support their effort, please contact Dani Mezzino at ESF Dream Camp, 610-581-0100, ext 215 or email her at Lee Brower will be running with the ESF team with Lori Brower and Nick Raitt there to support the effort!

Please go here ( for the current roster of those participating in the Ogden Marathon, Half Marathon and 5k. There is a column for registering with the Ogden event and another for registering with Nick's Warriors. Donating $30 and registering with Nick's Warriors includes participation in the pre-event dinner on Friday, May 14th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The dinner will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn (Davis Conference Center) - 762 W. Heritage Park Blvd (1651 N. 700 W.) We will enjoy a carb-filled dinner, show a short movie from First Descents, hand out tee shirts and embrace the reason we are all participating in this event. Please confirm your attendance to the pre-event dinner, if you haven't already, and go here for the Nick's Warriors registration link ( The marathon and half marathon are sold out; however, there is still room for 5k runners (please go here for Ogden 5K registration link -

There is still plenty of time to get pledges for donations (go here for pledge form - Tim Kvech from Maryland has already raised over $5,000!

We are also having a contest for both races to whoever has the ist costume/hat while running! Please be sure to take a picture of your favorite runner and we'll vote after the race!

For those that are interested, the Hilton Garden Inn located in Layton, Utah, has affordable rooms ($79/night) and is centrally located for shopping and restaurants. I have reserved a few rooms under “Empowered Wealth Foundation”, but you'll need to call 801-416-8899 and make your reservations by April 30th. Also, since the majority of us are in the 5K and the starting time is 7:00 a.m., we have made arrangements to have a bus pick us up at the Hilton Garden Inn at 6:00 a.m. We'll provide juice, bagels, etc. for the ride up. We can have the bus take those that want to go back early return to the hotel (time to be determined). Many may wish to go have breakfast near the finish line while we wait for our marathoners to run in!

Hi Lori and Lee,
Great job on the fund raising events. The Ulvins, Petersons, Davis, Hughes, Raitts, Allens, Widdisons, Dunlaps, Leonis, and friends will be there for your Utah Friday Night Dinner. A few determined souls will see you Saturday on the run.
Godspeed, aunt Chris
