Remember how we are not always prone to do rational things? Well, here we go again. This morning we signed up with a progam called Team in Training. It is through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Basically, we have agreed to raise money for the Society and in return they are going to allow us to run an absurd distance. It’s true.
Really, though, we are very excited about this. It is an excellent opportunity and we are helping a really good cause in the process. The event that we have signed up for is the Mayor’s Midnight Sun Marathon in Anchorage, Alaska. The race is 26.2 miles (a typical marathon) and takes place in June. We have set a goal to raise $10,300 before the race and we are going to need all of your help in the next few months to do it. The money will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and will help in the research and treatment of those suffering with blood cancers. We will be sending you letters and emails better explaining things and asking for donations, as well as trying to get your help in raising money through your friends and families as well. Also, if you have any ideas about fund raising please let us know. This is a huge project, but we know it will be worth it. For now, please visit our fundraising site (https://liz.heiselt.org/donate) to make a donation. Also, please feel free to tell anyone, everyone and their dog about this.
We really appreciate your help and support. Thanks.
