Open Your Heart This Valentine's Day with P.A.M.'s Run: Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Mobilization

Valentine's Day typically distinguishes the Haves from the Have-Nots. For couples, it's a time when you had better make a romantic gesture or suffer dire consequences. For a single girl like me, it's a time when you can't help but be reminded that finding Mr. Right can prove as much a challenge as finding Waldo might be for  a pre-schooler. 

Fortunately, this February 14th can be less about romantic love (or lack there of) and excessive consumerism and more about making the ultimate gesture of love. My dear friend Jessica Bardwil and her family serve as a perfect example: this year, they are joining forces with Road2ACure to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer research and to commemorate the year since Pam Bardwil lost her 19 month battle with the disease. Pam's daughters, who are at the helm of the event explain, "We want this day to embody everything our mom stood for: family, fun, community, and of course, the desire to make a difference." 

The certified 5k and 10k races are chip timed and will take place Saturday, February 14th in Westlake Village, CA. For more information about the event or how you can sponsor a runner check out P.A.M.'s Run!
