This ONe's for jim


Join us the weekend of June 19th as we honor the life and legacy of Jim Anderson with the inaugural POPPY'S PUB CRAWL & 5K Event!  Run with us to support the NORD foundation (National Organization of Rare Diseases) and take part in the culminating pub crawl on Saturday, June 19th.  We will begin the crawl at Brown's Brewery in Troy, NY by having a brew for Jim as he loved nothing more than sharing quality time with people. Together we commemorate the man who meant so much to our lives and raise money and awareness to help others with their fight against rare diseases. A special thanks to our event sponsors: Tech Electric, NOVUS Clothing Company, Aviza Super Clean, Cachet Salon, Griff's Construction, RJ Valente Companies, Valente's Rocks AAU Basketball, Rumor's Salon & Spa, Bernardo Goldstein & Quinn, BPI Piping, Albany Electrical Union, GTel, & EF3 LIFE.




Jim Anderson loved life.  He was a hard working family man who always put a smile on people's faces.  This past January, Jim lost his battle with a rare disease. Jim's motto has always been, "Deal With It."  The power behind these words is immense.  Rare diseases like the one Jim battled impact thousands of people every year.  They and their love one's have to deal with it, but the fight cannot be won alone.  By joining forces in Jim's honor and memory, we can deal with it together and help those who continue to fight.  Join us to spread hope & raise money for NORD.
