I am participating in "Rise to the Challenge 2020" in support of the Be Brave for Life Foundation. Between August 1 and October 1, we are trying to VIRTUALLY make our way across the US by logging miles through biking, running, hiking, pogo sticking - you get the point! For my challenge, I am going to run 30 miles a week or 240 miles in total over 8 weeks. Please consider making a donation OR joining our fundraising efforts.
In 2015, my daugther Riley, an 18 year old Burr and Burton Academy 12th grader, started Be Brave for Life after her third brain surgery to remove a tumor in her brainstem. Be Brave for Life’s mission is to inform, support, and improve the lives of individuals affected by brain tumors and cerebrovascular disease. Be Brave for Life believes that the only way to find better treatment options, and ultimately a cure, is by supporting innovative research, improving collaboration, and creating a community around bravery and hope.
In 5 years, the foundation has raised three quarters of a million dollars and supported innovative research initiatives at top hospitals and universities around the world. To learn more, visit their website at BeBrave.Life.
