Although nothing compared to the hurt and loss felt by so many around the world suffering the effects of the coronavirus, sending this email hurts. There will be no Saint Francis Tulsa Tough in 2020. Saying that we will miss you is an understatement. But it’s the right thing to do.
The world has taken an economic and emotional punch to the gut. Athletes understand the body’s need for a healing period after a severe injury. Rushing back prematurely can make the injury worse and delay healing. Given the enormity of the injury to our society, we believe hitting the pause button is the only responsible choice.
We will be working hard to make sure the 15th Saint Francis Tulsa Tough is worth the wait. Mark your calendars for June 11-13, 2021. We cannot wait to see you then.
In the meantime, let’s not forget the joys and benefits of living an active lifestyle. When you can, go outside. Go for a walk. Go for a bike ride. And remember that we will always be tougher together.
