A BIG Thank You to everyone who donated money last year when I ran a half marathon to raise funds for the A-T Children's project. I am very excited to anounce that I will be running the same race (the More/Fitness Magazine's half-marathon) again on Sunday, April 14, 2013 in honor of my friend Claudia's niece, Hazel and other children like her affected by A-T. Last year we raised 1,000 dollars which was AMAZING. I really hope to match that amount or surpass it this year with everyones help.
Those who know Hazel know that she is a sweet, inquisitive, energetic and loving five year old. She's silly, funny, loves animals, bugs, dirt, books, princesses, dancing, and sweets! Her imagination is out of this world and that, along with her creativity, has led her on many exciting "adventures."
Her parents, family, and friends have been commited to raising money to find a cure for A-T, not only for Hazel but for all families who face the many challenges of A-T.
I hope that by taking this small step I can help raise much needed funds as well as public awarenes about A-T.
The more I learned about A-T, and read the inspirational and empowering stories of children, young adults, and families living with the daily adversities of A-T and continuing to live fully enriching lives in spite of everything, the more inspired I became to do something to help.
My goal is to raise as much money as possible for the A-T Children's project. Thank you for visiting my page and for your donations!
