Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present our third event of 2019:
💫 The Pensieve 10k! 💫
For this event, we’re diving into the mysterious magical object used by Hogwarts headmasters (and Harry, of course) to examine and re-live memories. Legend has it that the founders of Hogwarts found the Pensieve half buried in the ground, and supposedly one of the reasons the school was located in such a remote location. In the dark days leading up to the Second Wizarding War, Albus Dumbledore used the Pensieve to organize his memories about Lord Voldemort. On the final day of that war, Harry used it to learn the truth about what needed to be done to defeat him, once and for all.
Reliving memories…especially happy ones…can be a very powerful magic.
Potterhead Running Club is thrilled to announce our charity partner for this event is Music & Memory! Music & Memory is a non-profit organization that brings personalized music into the lives of the elderly or infirm through digital music technology, vastly improving quality of life. They train nursing home staff, as well as family caregivers, to create and provide personalized playlists using iPods/MP3 Players to enable those struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories.
