Hello and thank you for visitng my fundraising page! I've been lucky enough to be offered a spot on the Credit Union Kids at Heart Team to run the Boston Marathon this April. Yes, I am asking for donations - ANY amount is appreciated and makes a difference. All donations (meaning 100% of them!) are donated - no operating expenses are withheld. This means that all the projects that are funded - including Pediatric Brain Cancer, Moyamoya Disease, Sturge-Weber Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Pediatric Epilepsy - benefit directly from all funds raised. Again, any amount makes a difference.
I will be running for Boston Children's Hospital and all the patients there including a lovely young girl, Maddy. Maddy was diagnosed with meningitis at 10 weeks old, and has beaten almost all the odds thus far. She, and all of the patients at Boston Children's Hospital benefit from each and every dollar raised.
Being a mother myself, raising money that will be donated for continued research at Boston Children's Hospital is something I feel very strongly about. It is important for research to continue in order to support all children who need to receive care at Boston Children's. It can take months - even years - to find cures and treatments for these kids. The funds raised gives hope to both the children and their families.
Your donation makes a difference - there is no doubt about it!
With much appreciation,
