This is a press release from the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation. Last year FCEF helped support Matt MClean and Ashley Twichell as they pursued their dreams in the pool.

Whether you ran with us last year or not, we wanted you to know that Team Fran plans to take on Philadelphia’s Broad Street Run May 5, 2013! The Blue Cross Broad Street Run course is a 10-mile point-to-point course, named one of the fastest 10-mile courses in the country by Runner’s World. Last year, we raised over $17,000 that went directly towards supporting athletes who are Working the Dream. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 and we need you to join us! If you do not get accepted into the race, don’t worry!  You’ll still be invited to the Team Fran post-run party, and we’ll be sending out additional ways you can support the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation.  Good luck!
