This year's running of the Tulsa Urban Adventure will be to help raise money for the Quinn Family from Bixby, Oklahoma.
Garrett & Amanda Quinn adopted 6 children last December. Just days after, they found out she had cancer.. again. She's battling that more than a 1,000 miles away in NY. Garrett & his kids are trying to move there, but w/ bills it isn't easy.
What joy to have such a blessing!
This joy was short lived as shortly after completing the adoption, Amanda learned that her cancer had returned. She & the whole family needed to uproot themselves & move to New York (actually, Garrett & the kids found a house in New Jersey where they can commute daily to the hospital where Amanda is undergoing a new treatment as a trial.
Know No Boundaries is running this year's Tulsa Urban Adventure 50 Mile Endurance Race to help the Quinn family with many of their financial needs.
Coach Jeff’s The Running Podcast interviewed Ken Saveth, the Founder & Managing Director of Know No Boundaries to talk about the upcoming Ultra Cowboy Ultra 50km that is benefiting
Here is the link to that interview for your listening pleasure.

Run on my friends & God Bless!
Friends, due to very low registration for this year's Ultra Cowboy Ultra 50km, we are having to CANCEL it.
It takes a lot of time & effort (all you Race Directors KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT) & if we don't have enough runners registered, it is not worth the time & effort to put in to make it happen.
Even though this was to be a FREE EVENT as a Fundraiser for local cycling Phenomenon Hannah Jordan, we cannot justify the amount of work to put it on without enough runners.
Please stay tuned as we will either hold another event at Prairie Song later in the year, or hopefully the first part of 2020.
Thank you for understanding & God Bless You!

As a mother of a son who died of cancer and had no insurance, the costs were horrible. Not just the physical and mental costs, but the monetary cost required to support that person. We had to make many trips to the OU Medical center in order for Jason to get his treatment. Know No Boundaries was a God Send to our family. Ken ran a 100 mile race and recruited sponsors for the race. The monies raised were donated to Jason to support his treatments and trips to and from the OU Medical Center. Ken and the Know No Boundaries family not only supplied monetary support, but spiritual support with prayers and visits to Jason and our family. I cannot explain how much we appreciate the support and care that Know No Boundaries provided. I have seen several other families who have benefited from this organization and I am sure that they all appreciate the assistance that they received. This is truly a calling from God for Kenand the supporters of this organization. Without their support, it would have been a much harder road to travel.

Our son, Dillon received a specially made jogging stroller from Know No Boundaries in 2012. It allowed us to run WITH Dillon , take walks with him or just bing outside. Five years later, Dillon is still enjoying it. Thank you Ken and Know No Boundaries.
