Join Team LBMMC “We Never Give Up Hope” for Donate Life Run/Walk 2011

February 25, 2011 Leave a comment

Did you know that:

  • over 110,200 people are waiting for an organ transplant
  • every 13 minutes a name is added to the wait list.
  • Here is the sad part… 18 people die each day waiting for a life saving transplant

… lets change this. Join our team LBMMC “We Never Give Up Hope” for the 2011 Donate life Run/walk to bring about awareness for organ donation. This is our sixth time participating in the event and we are happy to come back for another year. We love working with the organizers to get as many people hyped and as many people signed up to donate if an unfortunate event would occur in the future.

Thank you in advance 🙂

[Edit from Brian: Please let us know if you have any questions about joining.]

Jarrett’s Story for the Surf City Half Marathon

January 3, 2011 Leave a comment

Jarrett Steinmetz has been in the cheering section, watching his cousin Brian participate in half marathons and triathlons, and now wants to do his own half marathon. His family selected Huntington Beach because it provides familiar surroundings and the terrain is better for a first time.

Jarrett’s first walk occurred August 2008 when he joined family members in the LA AIDS WALK 10k, for which he raised $250 prior to the event. His interest in walking, and helping various causes, was sparked by his Aunt Singrid, a trauma nurse, and cousin Brian, a PST, both competitors in the 2007 LA Marathon.

The next month he participated in Newport Beach’s Susan G Komen Race for the Cure 5k., which was followed by the Thanksgiving 2008 Long Beach Turkey Trot 5k.

He participated in the Donate Life 5k in 2009 and again in 2010, in memory of his Grandmother.

Jarrett will be running as a member of team “We Never Give Up Hope”. His family selected Huntington Beach because it provides familiar surroundings and the terrain is better for a first time.

In addition to running, Jarrett has helped with open houses and tours run by his grandfather, Tom Pickett, at the old Santa Ana Courthouse. He is also the youngest member of the Orange County Historical Society.

Team WeNGUH Meets the Blog World

July 18, 2010 1 comment

We brought our team to the Rock ‘N’ Roll series and the California Dreamin’ Racing Series and now we’re bringing it to Blogger. We’ve done quite a few events running and even more so jogging and walking so we thought we would take our experiences in the past and experiences we will have and share them with the world. Hopefully, we can inspire the uninspired and give advice to others so they can be in the know. Most importantly, we hope to teach you how to keep going the extra mile when it really counts.

We hope you like what we have to offer and we hope you have fun while you continue to run, jog, and walk throughout your events and throughout your life.
