Dear Friends, Family and those of you with big hearts,
Thank you for helping me get very close to 25% of my goal by donating $240!! With your contributions I’m now fully committed to walking the 13.1 miles on January 20, 2019.
My reasons for doing this walk and raising $1000 remains the same!
- The International Bipolar Foundation is my major focus for this event. The work in the mental health world that they are doing is much needed. Take a look at their website and see for yourself: http://www.ibpf.org/
- The stigma surrounding ‘mental health’ is a heavy burden. It prevents people from seeking help. It destroys dreams. It ruins relationships. And that is just the beginning. We need your help to ‘BUST’ the stigma around mental health.
There are two videos of my granddaughter, Claire, that will help to open the conversation about mental health.

- My third reason remains the same: I just turned 70. This event is to celebrate how rich my life has been and will continue to be. I’m blessed with good health, a loving and supportive family, many longtime friends and a desire to continue to grow.
I need your help to raise the remaining $750. Share Claire’s story with others. Be bold!! Ask those around you to support us.
