With the passing of Jessica Salapek, we have lost a friend, a coach, a sister and a wildly creative force for good. Every Run Rever we have spoken to has expressed a profound sense of loss and a need for connection. So we have called a special Running Revolution meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, the 19th of December at the Allegheny National Forest offices in North Warren, 4 Farm Colony Drive, Warren, PA 16365. We plan to come together for a talk and sharing session and then a special run/walk out Big 4 Road...one of Jessica’s favorite places.
Mr. Gary Lester has agreed to speak to our group in what promises to be a helpful time of healing. After the talk, we hope that everyone will share their stories of Jessica and their thoughts and prayers before we head to Big 4 Road. Running Revolution friend, Rich Lindell has offered parking at Hatch Patch and his barn (where we’ve run the Strawberry Fields race in the past) for folks to meet up on the 19th after the discussion at the ANF offices.
Running Revolution friend, Piper VanOrd has donated a hot air wish balloon. Once we all collect at the barn, we will send this balloon aloft with our wishes before we run and walk together on Big 4 in remembrance and celebration of Jessica’s life.
That evening, we will also be taking a collection to purchase gifts for Jessica‘s children for Christmas as well as help the family in this incredibly difficult time.
More helpful resources, hugs, support and stories will be shared. So please come join your sisters in honoring Jessica and sharing support for one another. Wear your Run Rev Gear and bring headlamps. We will have our reflective belts available for all. ... See MoreSee Less
