Upcoming Community 5K to Raise Awareness about Drinking and Driving

Posted in: Woodmoor - Pinecrest Citizens

Hi Everyone!  My family lives on Lexington Drive in Woodmoor I wanted to extend an invitation to you all for the Best of the Best 5K on October 12, 2013.


October 10, 2013, marks the three year anniversary that my 26-year old brother, Rory Weichbrod was run over by a drunk driver. He was crossing a suburban Maryland street and was struck by a speeding car driven by a drunk driver. A close friend accompanying him also was killed. Their names were added to the ever-growing list of innocent victims whose lives are taken by drunk drivers.


Rory's life was cut short as a result of one man's decision to drink and drive, and his untimely passing left many of his life goals unfinished. To ensure that the memory of Rory and his spirit is kept alive, we established Rory J. Weichbrod Unfinished Business, Inc. (RJW) as a non-profit, charitable organization in July 2011. Its purpose is to promote responsible drinking and to raise public awareness to the dangers of drinking and driving through various community-enhancing events.

 

We will be holding our 3rd annual Best of the Best 5K to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving and honor the memory of Rory Weichbrod and Adam Hosinski on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  Rory grew up in Woodmoor and we would love to have the support of the community at this year’s Best of the Best 5K.  This event will be held at Sligo Creek Park in Silver Spring on a certified course.  This is a family-friendly event so everyone is welcome!  There will be a Howloween Dog Costume Contest, music, silent auction and raffle items, and delicious refreshments provided by Panera Bread, Starbucks Coffee, Trader Joes, and Ruth’s Chris Steak House.

Please feel free to visit our website to learn more about our organization and register for the Best of the Best 5K www.BB5K.org.  We’re also still looking for sponsors and volunteers.  So if you’re interested please message me or send an email to contact@rorysunfinishedbusiness.org
