Lou and Roxlyn at Stadium Stampede
June 27, 2004
The photos were taken on June 27, 2004 at the 20th Stadium
Stampede...a fund raiser event sponsored by the Bronco football team for
St. Joseph's Hospital Charities in Denver, Colorado at the Invesco Mile
High Stadium/field. They had 5K Run, 5K walk and a 1K for lung
impaired. I walked the 5K and the 1K The cart you see me pulling is
an old golf bag cart...adapted for my high flow O2 container plus
backpack, water, etc. The big wheels maneuver curbs with ease.
The course was tough with steep hills, plus being at 5500 ft.
elevation/altitude. I had to boost the O2 up to 15 liters.(normal
use 3L). Age 66...finished the 5K in 48:43. Pretty good for
having only 50% diffusion. Shows what 14 months of total
dedication to exercise can do. Next 5K will be at the American Lung
Associations Lung Challenge in Denver, CO.on September 12th.
