Dear Friends & Family,
I’ve set a goal to run the NYC Marathon this autumn – it’s a big undertaking for me. I’m not a runner unless chasing the kid counts – but I’m going to push myself!
I’m running for the Chris Klug Foundation Team inspired by Chris and his story of bouncing back from a lifesaving organ transplant to win an Olympic medal eighteen months later. Chris pushes himself. Chris ran last year and his wife Missy will run with me this year. Their kids are some of my kids’ closest friends. I’m excited to support a friend and his mission to increase organ and tissue donations so that others like him can overcome their illness and go on to achieve their goals too.
I’ve set two goals for myself: 1) Raise awareness and support for organ and tissue donation through the Chris Klug Foundation! 2) Finish the race!
I’d greatly appreciate your help – please make a donation.
With love and leg pains!
