Hello LA ASH Bash participants!

We are a little more than 1 week away from our highly anticipated ASH Bash 10K race/walk!
First, we wanted to thank you for joining our Ambassadors for Sustained Health community through this event. Originally started as a celebratory event of our non-profit’s anniversary, ASH Bash has grown from a one city celebration to an annual cross country event that celebrates and raises awareness of our mission.
We believe health is not just about medical care, and believe in the importance of getting people healthy and keeping them healthy holistically. And through our 10K Nation initiative, we know that with your help we will meet our goal to reach 10,000 people in Kenya to get them healthy and keep them healthy by end of 2013. We are so excited and grateful to have you join us in spreading our awareness on health. 
At the bottom of this email is more detailed race day information, and feel free to contact me (kyle@weareASH.org) if you have any further questions.
