Run Your Knit Out.

Didn’t that get your attention enough? He is a Missouri runner who knitted his heart out for the New York City marathon. It is very fascinating and intriguing to see how creative people can be. The titles from the news articles I read it from drew my attention so much that I was curious to find out exactly what the purpose behind it. David Babcock’s motive behind this is to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease. He had knitted a scarf long above 12 foot long that could definitely come in handy on a cold winter afternoon when he stepped crossed the finish line in Kansas City. It is two-person club open to all to support to support the Alzheimer’s association. David Babcock was inspired by Hewer; a 56-year on runner who was thought by her mother Peggy how to knit. She ran her first marathon to raised money when her mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia. It was a silly idea from a friend in the beginning but then she thought to herself “why not make a record out of it. I would love to ask Hewer is she ever imagined this going global. What is the next step for this club across the nation? How can this legacy live on? What amount have they raised since the first marathon in 2006, and the lives that have been impacted. Individuals like you and I should join David and Hewer. There is so much going on in the world of today, so if you can change the world one way or the other what would it be and how would you go about it? If you had an opportunity to do something to make a difference like the movement David Babcock is doing, how would yours be?
