Do you watch too much HGTV? Here’s something you can do with all that pent-up creativity. Decorated potties are a beloved tradition at the MD5K, and we invite you to take part! We have 40 potties that need some help being beautiful. And this year we have two great top prizes: 1) a 4-hour house cleaning from Cleaning Authority, or 2) $25 in movie passes if you enter the kids’ bracket. Yes, you can even volunteer for more than one! Please sign up here and join the fun! More details 2014 Portapot Flyer

Every MD5K entrant gets a custom-made charm when she crosses our Finish Line. We create a new design each year to match our daisy logo, and have them cast in jewelry-quality pewter. Then we string them on a satin cord necklace just for you.
Some women wear them as is, some add them to a bracelet or key ring. We wanted to give you something different than a medal — something you might actually wear again!
Here are some charms from past years, and a peek at the 2014 model.

February is ♥ month. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women campaign aims to raise awareness about heart disease in women, and they’ve adopted the red dress as their symbol. To learn more about the #1 killer of American women, check out this great short video “Just A Little Heart Attack”. A portion of MD5K proceeds will benefit Go Red.
We care about your ♥!
