Preblast: Speed for Need @ St. Philip Neri Cannoli Run 5k

Calling all men of F3 Fort, F3 Area 51, and surrounding F3 Nation regions. On Saturday, May 19, Speed for Need will roll at the Cannoli Run (see what I did there) at the St. Philip Neri Italian Festival in Fort Mill. Your presence is requested to serve our two Track Commanders and to converge in fellowship at an awesome Fort Mill tradition, led by one of our own.

Speed For Need is privileged to push two Track Commanders in the 5k:
– Jessie is an 11 year old girl who loves fun and adventure. She was born prematurely and suffered a brain injury at birth which led to cerebral palsy, vision impairment, and developmental delay. Despite these challenges, Jessie makes the most of life! She enjoys school, hanging out with friends and family, listening to music, watching plays, eating at Chick-Fil-A, and going on road trips. Jessie is a veteran Track Commander and is looking forward to rolling again with Speed for Need next Saturday!

– Luka, another SFN veteran and F3 Vuvuzela’s 2.0, is a 7 year old boy who has suffered from seizures since birth. He was diagnosed with CDKL5 gene disorder (epilepsy) at 2 years old. Luka is funny! He does not talk or walk, but he communicates with us in a very special way; his facial expressions are the best. Those who know him understand that Luka enjoys every minute of his life, especially the opportunity of running with Dad.

Men, we have a remarkable opportunity to connect with these two TCs and their families through Speed For Need. I urge you to come out next Saturday to serve and to be part of something larger than ourselves. Who pushes who?
