EVENT DATE: Aug 02, 2014
Family and friends, thank you so much for all the help and support you continue to provide me everyday. I want to pay it forward again to Camp Sunshine this year, so I am asking for your support!
TEAM ELIZABETH is back on the road to the Beach to Beacon 10K on August 2nd! 13 of my amazing friends (they really are family) and a cheer team 7 deep will be joining me in Cape Elizabeth, Maine for the 2014 Beach to Bacon (I mean Beach to Beacon)! Team Elizabeth will be running 6.2 miles (uphill) trying to raise over $14,000 for Camp Sunshine.
The past 8 years since Elizabeth's diagnosis have been a blessing to me. It's been over a year since Elizabeth got her angel wings, and though I miss her every day, I know she's with me and I am so proud to have had the opportunity to share in Elizabeth's amazing life. She has always been my hero and will continue to inspire me every single day. I hope we all can celebrate her everyday, whether it's when we eat a slice of pizza with garlic and cheese, snack on some Swedish fish, or send her up a balloon, we all know how much she loved a good party!
So many of you knew our super-hero Elizabeth, and that she had attended Camp Sunshine many times since her diagnosis. Camp was one of Elizabeth's favorite places. It has provided community and support for all of us. And once again, we have been given the chance to pay it forward. Join us in sending another family to camp, I hope you can help! Here's how:
1. Sponsor Me! My goal is to raise $2,041! If you would like to contribute please go to: https://www.crowdrise.com/beachtobeacon/fundraiser/amandacann

Runners of all abilities from almost every state in the nation will run from the starting line with some of the very best runners from around the world at the 17th TD Beach to Beacon 10K on August 2, 2014, at 8:00 AM.
The 6.2-mile run, starting at Crescent Beach and ending at Portland Head Light, the nation's first commissioned lighthouse, attracted over 6,000 runners, along with over 10,000 spectators, to the Maine coast last summer, making it the largest road race ever in the Pine Tree State.
Help Camp Sunshine reach their goal of raising $25,000 to sponsor 12 children with life-threatening illnesses and thier families.
