Super-volunteer Kim Perez needs our help now

Although this blog isn’t active any more since the new BTC crew has taken over, perhaps some of you are still subscribed and reading this. In any case, Kim Perez, our “pin girl” pictured below, who generously volunteered her precious time before the crack of dawn to help with registration and number pinning at Beat the Clock for many years, needs our help now. Her husband Ed has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and Kim is on leave from work to care for him. We all know the costs involved with a medical problem of this magnitude, so some friends have set up a fundraiser for Kim & Ed here: Please consider donating, no matter how small the amount.

Kim has helped out tirelessly at BTC in the past, it’s time we give something back. Thank you!

  1. Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, Ed Perez passed away last year.

    Regarding Beat the Clock, Jeromy Cottell and Pen Velo successfully took over the series last year. As far as I know, the planning for 2016 is in progress. For further information you’ll have to contact Pen Velo.
