50K for CHKD
Well once again, things are changing. The original race set for April 11th, has been postponed until Oct 17 of this year. So instead of wasting the past 6 months of training, I have decided to run the 50k on my own. My registration for the original race has been transferred over and I will continue to train and plan on completing the race in Oct. But in the mean time, April 10th will be my "make up" day.
I am overwhelmed by all of your support for me on this task. I have increased my goal to 4070.00. Thank you again to everyone who had donated. When that alarm goes off in the morning, I will know it is for more then just myself that I will be getting up and running for.
Please help me support this hospital as I run a 50K to celebrate my 50th birthday.
Many people are not aware of my Leukemia diagnosis in 1977. After doing some investigation, I found a statistic that had a big impact on me. One statistic showed that a child diagnosed in 1977 had a 40.7% chance of surviving 5 years past the original diagnosis. That is why I have decided to have my goal of $407.
The funds raised will be donated to the Oncology/Hematology unit at the hospital. All donations are tax deductible. You will be sent a receipt after the donation has been processed.
