I will be running in the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll half marathon on Sunday, June 5th - my first ever. As part of my race experience, this is my awareness and fundraising page and I am asking for your support to fund research to cure Mitochondrial Disease as well as other serious, chronic and rare disorders by donating to a non-profit organization called Bacon Bits of HOPE.
As some of you know, in my volunteer work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation I get to meet and know some pretty awesome kids going through the challenge of life-threatening medical conditions. These kids are strong and all of them are doing remarkable things. One of the most amazing kids I recently met is Bacon Bits of HOPE’s Chief Hope Officer, "Sweet and Sassy" Sam. Sam has an extremely rare medical condition called Metabolic Mitochondrial Disease. But her disease and daily challenges have not stopped her or even slowed her down as she is on a mission to help others by giving them HOPE!
Realizing that we all have many financial commitments, even small donations would be much appreciated. The collective positive impact that all of our donations will make – is beyond measure because every dollar given to Bacon Bits of HOPE provides hope and happiness to those less fortunate with their health. In that regard, please note that all donations will go directly to Bacon Bits of Hope. Beyond my costs, which I will cover to get to and from the race, I am also committed to making a donation to Bacon Bits of Hope.
I am very appreciative of your consideration and generosity in supporting this great cause and organization.
I encourage everyone to spend a few minutes on the Bacon Bits of Hope website to see the powerful projects and work they are doing! They also have a Sweet and Sassy Shop - where you can purchase awareness bracelets, duck tape wallets, purses and rings. I've seen these handmade items in person and they are awesome!
