EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
Double Exposure Reverse Match Opportunity!! Promote Childrens Cancer awareness and grant wishes to kids fighting cancer in BOTH the Chicago and New York Marathons! GOLD and Bucky will be in front of MILLIONS!!!! Heres the short story:
Last year had a hugely public journey to run my first marathon (actually to run at all) In honor of Childrens Cancer Awareness and raised almost $6,000 for Cals Angels. Quit running after. Gained 25 pounds in 3 months. Started running again. Have completed another Marathon, and five 1/2 marathons since and logged over 1,100 miles in 18 months.. all in the name of Childrens cancer awareness. I am running Chicago a second time October 11th, and 3 weeks after I am running New York November 1st. (been declared by my coach "pretty insane " for a mid life non runner. I didnt listen.) Between the two, 5 Million + people will be able to see me run by in the prominent Gold ribbon... and all will see between 60-70 names on my arms I'm running for. Including app 20 Forever Young angels. It is emotional. It is powerful. It means the world to all the families I run for. And it is my families passion to fight for Childhood Cancer Awareness.
This year my goal is $6,500 for Cal's Angels and I'm praying those that know me well (and know this is the one time I actually go out and ask for money each year)help me out. I remain on the board for Cals and will personally continue to help steward all the amazing differences we are able to make with donations you entrust to me.
So what is a double reverse match? The reverse match Is I pre-funded the entire charity requirements ($6,500) for both races so I could put every dollar given to me with Cal's Angels (New York Im running on a Healthy Kids charity team. Important, but not my passion) The double is you get to sponsor me once for BOTH the Chicago Marathon October 11th AND the New York Marathon November 1st with this one donation. I will be in full Cal's Uniform as in the pictures shown on my page here for both.
Last I want to state that like Childrens Cancer is a passion with my family, I know many of you have very different passions. Please GIVE to this one for me and ASK me to contribute to yours. I will thrillingly reciprocate. Help me blow past $6,500. Im starting late.. lets make a statement together.
Thank you from both myself and all the families who have had the horror of dealing with this #1 killer disease of age 1-19.
