Kristi's June 2020 Health and Fitness Page

As we venture into summer, we are amidst difficult times as the Coronavirus continues and at the killing of George Floyd.  May we all pause and consider how we can be a part of positive change. I thank you for your dedicated support in coming to my web page through the years, and I pray for safety and health for you this summer.  I miss all of you and while I have had the chance to see some via physical distancing, others I have only had the opportunity to do so via Facebook.  My prayers to each of you.

Please note, to pause in reflection, this month I don't have any added fitness facts nor the Social Update- I have left time for folks to ponder on the photos, pause, pray and reflect. ...

   Purple Pumpers 25


While the Purple Pumpers will partake in the virtual MS 150 this year,- given that this was to be our 25th year, we will celebrate the 25th next year (even though it will be our 26th).   If you'd like to still support our cause you can do so here:

Amidst Covid 19 and these difficult times, may we always remember George Floyd, and may we all prayerfully consider how we may individually and collectively work to change systems that need to be changed, and too, may we prayerfully consider how to make a positive difference.  Here is what I posted on Facebook as we saw a glimpse of hope as people came together..

Heartening sign- May we always remember George Floyd, and the need for positive individual and systemic change. After virtual church my friend Chris and I went down to South Minneapolis to donate several bags of groceries and boxes of diapers and laundry soap (I had put up this morning the call for help as there were 168 families from the middle school needing help and food as the primary store in the area no longer exists). On the way down we were in line as of nearly 1.5 miles out (on Hiawatha)! - We waited for over an hour in the car and as we got closer we were overwhelmed. The school had such response they had what appeared to be several hundred if not thousands of donations of bags of groceries and boxes of diapers and too they had to divert many to several overflow sites. There was a diverse group of people collecting food, giving food, and receiving donations and we even saw folks from various states (out of state) who said (we were all in a parking lot of vehicles stuck for several blocks so talked from the cars) that they heard about the donation on the local news and came to donate. There were individuals from Colorado, New York, Wisconsin and other states donating. May we all remember George Floyd, may we combat the many isms, may we seek social change, and may we all soul search of how to make a positive difference. <Forgive the photos, I took them through the windows in the car>
