The 2011 SAMI Tour is now complete.
I ran the Marine Corps. marathon on behalf of SAMI with a finishing time of 4:11:56. Although not a personal record, I was very pleased with the way I managed the race and had plenty of energy to cross the finish line.
The race was well run and the weather held out for us; given the day before we had snow showers. The fan fare was spectacular and the race medal is one that I will treasure.
This year was extra special. We not only raised $560 that will go directly toward music scholarships for youth in Tippecanoe county but was also surprised by my family who came to support me during the race. It was certainly a memorable and extra special event in 2011.
What is the SAMI Tour? As a strong advocate for youth education in music, culture, and the arts, the 2010 SAMI Tour is committed to supporting and promoting these efforts in the mid-north region of Indiana through individual and group running events. It is likely you know someone in your own life that has left an invaluable impression with their musical or artistic talents — perhaps you or your spouse, relative, coworker, neighbor or friend — someone in your life’s circle who has brought stories to life through lyrics, culture, and art that have provided long lasting memories and joy.
What is a SAMIs Groupie? This is a group of supporters that follows and provides support (through words of encouragement and monetary donations) to SAMI runners throughout the year. To show your support click on "Become a Groupie."
What is RACE for SAMI? The purpose of racing for SAMI is raise awareness and funds for youth education in music in the Tippecanoe County and surrounding communities. This is a great way to do something for yourself (running a 5K or 1/2 marathon) while giving back to the youth of your community. Join our cause and sign up today, click on "Race for SAMI."
