However, the Bridge Run and its signature post-race event "The Cool Down" will always hold special places in my heart. It was a chance meeting during the 2013 "Cool Down" that the seeds for Patti Loves Bing were sown.
A year ago, I was at a loss. I was trying to come up with a way to give back to a community full of some amazing people and organizations who give of their time, energy and love to make this a better place to live. My financial resources were extremely limited making the usual route of attending as many fundraising events as possible not feasible.
It was at this chance meeting a year ago, during "The Cool Down", that a friend suggested I brand myself as Patti Loves Bing; that I highlight all that was good about Binghamton - the places, the people, the food, and, of course, the many nonprofit organizations.
I am extending an invitation to all who are in or near Binghamton on Sunday, May 4th to come on out to "The Cool Down 2014". Follow the Cool Down trail. Who knows? You may also find yourself embarking on an incredible journey just as I did. If not, at least you can partake of the specials being offered at the different venues; many of which are available to all; not just the runners. You never know; you may even happen upon an impromptu Patti Loves Bing 1st Birthday party.
