COVID-19 SOLIDARITY RESPONSE FUND
Dear Friends and Family—
The number of infected people with COVID-19 is 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, increased fear, cancelled trips, and unemployment.
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
The Milwaukee Marathon that I was supposed to run on 4/11 was moved to virtual, so I will be running these miles myself at a nearby forest preserve. 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.
Important to note:
(1) 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.
(2) I am going to keep this fund open until the end of April. Stay tuned for finishing pics as I wait for warmer weather to get these 26 miles in!
