2019 Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd
On the tail of the 2019 Tulsa Urban Adventure, we are going
planning to run the100km at the 2019 Pumpkin Holler Hundred!
We've run this course countless times & love it however with
inadequate training, we've opted to run the 100km instead.
The Quinn Family is once again the recipient of this event & all funds
raised will go directly to help Amanda Kick Cancer!
You are also welcome to come out to Eagle Bluff Resort outside of
Tahlequah, Oklahoma to camp out & support us & the rest of those running!

Run on my friends & God Bless!
This year's running of the Tulsa Urban Adventure was to help raise money for the Quinn Family from Bixby, Oklahoma. Amanda Quinn was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, but despite this, she & her husband Garrett pushed to complete their adoption of (6) siblings!
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 ran this year's Tulsa Urban Adventure 50 Mile Endurance Race to help the Quinn family with many of their financial needs.The race started off with PERFECT weather; cloudy with a chance of rain. There was even a teaser of mist mid morning, however once the clouds parted in the afternoon, the humidity and temperature soared! Needless to say that a combination of the hot, humid weather combined with my lack of adequate basses training (YES, training does matter), had us drop 17 miles short of our 50 mile goal with 33 miles completed.
There are no regrets, as we always run smart and not run prideful.
None-the-less, opportunities to help Amanda continue!
Know No Boundaries is running 100 km at Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd (that's 62 miles) near Tahleqhah, Oklahoma the weekend of October 19th & 20th.
BE SURE TO DONATE AS ALL DONATIONS WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE QUINN FAMILY AND ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE!

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.
