We love Rue.
Rue’s smiling face has been with PSKC since the very first day. He was the first person to greet you, tell you a joke, and flash you a smile. Rue is one of the guys that automatically makes your day a little better. He is our Santa Claus, literally every year he volunteers to pass out gifts to the neighborhood kids. That’s the kind of dude Rue is.
Rue is also an avid runner and you’ve probably seen him trucking up and down Portsmouth. He loves running and making people feel better.
Unfortunately, the last 2 years have been rough for Rue. It all started when he was involved in a nasty car wreck that resulted in him getting life flighted to Huntington. After he recovered from that accident he started running again and was struck by a vehicle on the highway.
As if two back to back accidents weren’t enough to handle physically and financially, he was stricken with cancer. For the last couple months he has been undergoing treatment fighting cancer in Columbus. The combination of these accidents has resulted in some pretty serious medical bills.
We all know Rue would be the first to lend a hand to us, now it’s our time to help him out. On Saturday, May 6th we want you to join us for the RUE RUN!
WHAT: The Rue Run can be done as an individual or as a team. It’s a 5Kish route that starts at PSKC and runs along the levee. Running/walking not your thing? No problem grab a t-shirt in show of support or stop by the gym and drop off a donation.
WHEN: Saturday, May 6th 10am
WHERE: PSKC CrossFit – 549 3rd St, Portsmouth, Ohio
REGISTRATION COST: $30 (includes a tshirt if registered before Monday, April 24th) ALL proceeds will go directly Rue.
RUN DETAILS: Route will start at the gym and then venture around the riverfront and levee. You can choose to have as many people on your team as you want. If participating as a team we ask you carry a weight/object to symbolize the fight against cancer. The more creative the better.
