COVID-19 SOLIDARITY RESPONSE FUND
Dear Friends and Family—
As we all know, Trump has declared a ‘National Emergency’ in response to the spread of the coronavirus. The number of infected people seems to be rising every day, all over the world. The most unfortunate part of it all is we don’t have a solution—only empty toilet paper shelves, inflated hand sanitizer prices, cancelled trips, lay-offs, and
In a more positive light, there is a way we can fight the spread: COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. It supports the World Health Organization (WHO) in tracking and understanding the spread of the virus to ensure patients get the care they need and workers get essential supplies and information to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments.
MY VIRTUAL MARATHON
And if you are looking to add some intentionality in support of this initiative—come out and support my virtual Milwaukee Marathon (also cancelled due to the coronavirus) run on April 11th. I am dedicating my miles for this cause as a show of solidarity in moving towards getting through this epidemic together. I also do not want to allow the coronavirus to stop me from doing something I have been training MONTHS to accomplish.
Where to find me? If you have an Iphone, you can track me on the Find My Friends app. If you don't, try to stick with someone who does. As for logistics--I will begin and end the run on the Chicago Lakefront Trail start, running 13.1 miles out and back. Please see the "Map of Lakefront Trail" below in the helpful links to see the North Side and South Side of the map.
Important to note: Facebook made a match commitment of 10 million dollars with this fund as of 3/13/20. I will be donating all funds I receive in this campaign towards this initiative in an effort to help reach that goal.
