    Hello Notch Friends and Family!

    This is a Get Your Rear in Gear update from Lindsey, Mike, Mark and Jenni.

    T-shirt orders are due April 1.

    Please order online at:


    Any proceeds raised from selling t-shirts will be donated to the Colon Cancer Coalition.

    It's not too late to join our teams at the Get Your Rear in Gear events in the Twin Cities and Chicago!

    You can choose between April 19 in the Twin Cities and April 25 in Chicago.

    So far, we have 75 team members signed up for the Twin Cities race... but we'd love to hit 100. If you haven't signed up yet, please do! And bring a friend! The kid's fun run (right before the 5K run/walk) is being run in honor of Anne and should be a really fun event for children.

    Join the Twin Cities team:


    Join the Chicago team:


    To join either team, click on the appropriate link. Then click "Team Member Registration" and select "Notch Your Average Cancer Fighters" from the drop-down menu on the next screen.

    We can't wait to celebrate Anne's life on April 19 and 25. We can't guarantee it will be warm, but it will be fun! Please join us in spreading our message of hope!

    Contact Lindsey with questions: lmdickin02@hotmail.com.

    Thanks all,

    Lindsey, Mike, Mark and Jenni

    Dear Family and Friends,

    The Notch family cannot express enough of our gratitude that we are certainly blessed with wonderful friends and family. We continue to receive profound generosity from all. The kids are adjusting well to the new routines of life.

    We just returned from our Spring Break week in Sanibel Florida. We are grateful to spend the week with my older sisters family (Michelle, Loren, Jena, and Josie), my parents (Ralph and Sheri), little sister (Julie, and husband Jay) and nanny Ashley. Natalie and Sam spent the week swimming with cousins Jena and Josie, searching for shells and sea creatures, watching for dolphins, and admiring sand sculptors by artist Loren. Christopher has been walking for several weeks - but was uncertain of the beach sand. I spent the week relaxing and sunbathing as much as possible.

    This year the Get Your Rear in Gear kids race is in honor of Anne. The following message is from organizer Lindsey, Mike, Mark and Jenni - T-shirts will be ready the week of March 16th - visit www.notchyouraveragecancerfighters.org. I hope to see everyone there.

    A Message from Lindsey, Mike, Mark and Jenni:

    Please join us on Sunday, April 19, 2009 at Southdale Center in Edina, Minnesota for the Get Your Rear in Gear 5K and Kids' Fun Run.
