Thank you for visiting Wade and Kathleen's fundraising page! On November 5, 2016, Wade and Kathleen will be competing in the Savannah Rock N Roll Marathon/Half Marathon. They are excited to be racing along side the Kyle Pease Foundation!
The purpose of the Kyle Pease Foundation (KPF) is to create awareness and raise funds to promote success for persons with disabilities by providing assistance to meet their individual needs through sports. Programs may include scholarship opportunities, purchasing of medical equipment or adaptive sports equipment for others or contributing to other organizations that provide similar assistance to disabled persons as well as participating in educational campaigns to create awareness about Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. KPF will provide these services directly to individuals as well as to partner with other existing non-profit organizations to achieve these goals. Direct benefits will be limited to persons with disabilities who need adaptive sports equipment, mobility devices or medical care. You can learn more about the foundation here: http://www.kylepeasefoundation.org/new-events/
Wade and Kathleen have both completed multiple endurance events over the last several years. However, this event will be a bit different. Wade has paired up with a wheelchair athlete to assist her in completing the Savannah Rock N Roll marathon, while Kathleen will be pushing her special needs son in the half marathon. With your support, other individuals will get to participate in road races. Every dollar helps and is 100% tax-deductible! Help us and so many more reach finish lines all over
