AUGUST 19, 2020
Please join us on Wednesday, August 19th for a virtual 5k run & walk event to honor Bernard Llave. Bernard fought his 8-year battle against leukemia with grace, dignity and an incalculable amount of strength. He, along with his amazing wife Dee, lit the b.strong torch and shared their lives with all of us through each step of his treatment. He inspired us to push ourselves, do new things and positively impact the world. To date the b.strong team has raised over $1.7 million to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), led countless people to join the bone marrow registry through Be The Match and provided hope, love and friendship to all who have come into contact.
August 19th would have been Bernard's 46th birthday and we want to celebrate him in a way we think he would have appreciated. So no matter where in the world you are, no matter the path you take, no matter how fast or slow you go find a 5k (3.1 mile) route and join the b.strong family in remembering Bernard. All funds raised will benefit LLS. Your $46 registration fee includes a b.strong 5k shirt, an event bib and a special token of participation. Our goal is to have someone from each of the 50 states, plus DC, to join so please spread the word and let's keep the b.strong flame burning bright. If you have any questions please contact .
