Run Jen Run has become Jennifer's favorite event for the cause! It was started by Jen Pagani when she was in treatment for breast cancer two years before she passed away in 2014. Now her friends and family host the event in her honor. The story of Jen's courageous battle is here: https://gojengo.org/the-gjg-story/ Every person Jennifer met was friendly and kind, and the VIP treatment for survivors was unparalleled. Jennifer is already looking forward to next year's race!

This event played out differently than expected! Only one person attended, but they had a delightful time together. Jennifer shared about her book and other projects she's working on, and she was privileged to hear about the other person's writing goals and projects. Because there were only two of them, they were able to connect on a heart level--which is Jennifer's favorite kind of connection!

THIS EVENT WAS SO MOVING. There were 15,000+ people at the Komen Walk, 700 of whom were breast cancer survivors. Jennifer was surprised to see so many men in the crowd who were there to support the cause, and some were even wearing tutus or pink dresses! The survivors received special gift bags and breakfast before the race. And there were teams of "cheerleaders" on every corner of the walk to encourage the participants to keep going. Jennifer's favorite part was the time she spent talking with other survivors and hearing their stories.
