Mare Goes Running
First of all- THANK YOU for visiting my fundraising page! I'm SO excited to be partnering with Team RMHC-UM!!
June 2020 I will be lacing up my shoes and running Grandma's Half Marathon with a purpose, to raise money for a Charity that I hold near and dear to my heart.
In August of 2015 I found myself in a very complex and life-threatening pregnancy. I had to travel 4.5 hours from home to seek a competent medical facility. Being away from home and sleeping in hospital rooms for weeks was unbearably difficult. I was homesick and wanted nothing more than to be in the comfort of my own home with my new baby.
But then came a little miracle. A sweet lady knocked on my hospital door and offered me a room at the Ronald McDonald House in Minneapolis. I can only TRY to express my gratitude for RMH-Minneapolis! They provided me everything a mew mom could possibly need! I immediately felt welcomed, cared for and respected. I could take a shuttle to the NICU anytime, I could wash my own clothes and have a hot home-cooked meal each night! Ohh, it was amazing! My family was able to come visit me and they were treated just as wonderfully as me! Being able to stay at RMH-Minneapolis was one of the most generous gifts I have ever received. I cannot express my gratitude in words! I will never forget how they, in a time of great hardship for me and my family, came in and took such good care of us.
Being able to raise money for the incredible charity is something I am honored to do. And in the event that another opportunity arises, you can guarantee I'll be there. I want to THANK RMH for everything!! :)
And THANK YOU to every single one of you who makes a donation on my behalf for the RMHC-UM. Its a honor.
And I am so excited to race in June! Now it's time to start training!
