As a cause that is near and dear to my heart, I am privileged to preview the From Here to Hear 5k presented by Eclectic Edge Racing and the Eugene Speech and Hearing Center. On Saturday, August 23 at 8:30 a.m. racers will line up at the Riverbend Annex in Springfield, OR. to run to raise funds for the Eugene Speech and Hearing Center and will be run in honor of Karlie Geiser Hobson a fellow runner who passed in 2012. She was a speech pathologist at this center and an organizer of this race.
If you find yourself in the Eugene area and are looking to get a run in, please consider this great local race for a great cause!
