Topeka sponsor Christie Appelhanz and her daughter, Kate, often go for runs together.
Sponsor Christie Appelhanz is starting her birthday celebration a couple days early. Not with a big party or a fancy dinner, but by running for charity. She’ll be visiting Kansas City on June 5 to take part in the Hospital Hill Run as an Unbound Trailblazer.
“Hospital Hill Run is special because the 5K takes place two days before my 40th birthday,” Christie said. “Instead of gifts, I’m asking friends and family to contribute $40 to Unbound.”
Unbound editor Loretta Kline and her husband, Robert, train together for Kansas City’s Hospital Hill Run.

I ran track in high school and participated in road races. I hadn’t run in organized events for years when my daughters asked my husband and me to participate in a run on Thanksgiving Day. We ran as a family, survived it all and had fun in the process.
So when the Unbound Trailblazers were formed, I thought it was good motivation to get in better shape and help raise awareness of our organization at the same time. My husband and I started training for the Hospital Hill Run in Kansas City by running and walking 2‐4 miles several times a week.
We’re looking forward to joining the other Trailblazers June 6 on the road to physical fitness and helping a good cause.
Find out how you can join the fun and become an Unbound Trailblazer.
