Running for a Reason
Last year I had the privilege to help crew for a friend from Northern California who was racing (not just riding) his bike across the country in this race called Race Across America (RAAM). I witnessed an unbelievable demonstration of will, determination, strength, teamwork and achievement. Oceanside to Annapolis in 11 days. It was a riveting experience that I’ll never forget.

Through RAAM, I made some lifelong friendships, and not only with the others on the crew I was racing with. I also met Lesley and Connie Oslica, who were crewing for one of the NF Endurance teams. I had never hear of RAAM, NF or the NF endurance team. Now I know them all very well.

NF stands for Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder usually diagnosed in childhood that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. The NF endurance team is focused on raising awareness for this disease through running, biking, swimming or whatever it takes to pull together the ultimate team who will find a cure for NF. A cure for children like Katie Oslica and over 2 million others around the world.

I am running for the NF endurance team at the Little Rock marathon on March 7th. I hope you will run with me through your donation to support our team as we raise funds to support research to find a cure for NF. At dinner tonight with Lesley and Connie I learned that an initial research grant of $25,000 often grows to over $100,000 as the researchers continue their research through additional funding in hopes of finding a cure for NF.

You can watch the short video below to learn some facts about NF and how your donation provides hope for those living with NF. I would like to raise $2500 through 100 supporters with an average donation of $25. Although some of you may choose to give more, I believe in the power of numbers to raise awareness and make a significant contribution.

If you don’t step up I may not get my 100 supporters so you might say I am counting on you to finish the race. Please join me if you can. I’ve done the training and will run the 26.2. Knowing I have your support will make a difference to me and hopefully to millions of others.

Total Donations Collected:$4,165.00

Below is a video from the Children’s Tumor Foundation that demonstrates how your support benefits nearly 2 million people worldwide that are affected by Neurofibromatosis. I hope you’ll please take a few minutes to watch the video and perhaps be as motivated as we are to support The Children’s Tumor Foundation.
