I am off for a day out with my kids (can’t wait!), but I just wanted to share a few things.
BADWATER DOUBLE – THE MPD FOUNDATION
Life is hectic, but I am so fortunate to be able to make time for fundraising for the MPD Foundation. Many have asked why I would consider taking on the Badwater Double again…here’s a link that describes the important cause I will be supporting when I take on this challenge:
Dean Karnazes won the ESPY Award for best Outdoor Athlete, earning over 50% of the vote! Good Dean. Here is a link to a great post about this on Scott Dunlap’s Blog. Thanks, Scott – for sharing such awesome information about ultra running!
AND I WON – LOOK WHAT A GREAT BROTHER I HAVE!
My brother Mike, who lives in Illinois, is one of my best friends. Mike sent this e-mail to his friends…his kindness inspires me every day!
Dear family, friends & acquaintances,
MAKE A DONATION TODAY!
Please take a moment to check out these links; they link you to my sister Lisa’s next challenge and provide you with a way to help her reach an important goal. She has and is giving all she’s got physically, mentally and spiritually to meet this incredible challenge. But, she cannot do it alone and needs a little help and kindness from a lot of unknown people.
Therefore, I am asking for a moment of your time; the moment it will take to click on this link, to read and to understand Lisa’s passion and the selfless challenge she has ahead. She has committed her mind, body, talent, time and resources to reach a goal: to financially help the MPD Foundation explore treatments, find a cure and save lives.
But, as I said before, she cannot do it alone and needs a little help and kindness from a lot of unknown people. If you can skip a Starbucks today, you can help. If you can dig the loose change out of the creases of your couch or from the bottom of your purse, you can help. Any and every coin will help; each and every dollar will make a difference. When Lisa succeeds in this challenge and accomplishes her goal, it will raise the performance bar for success and motivate other talented and driven athletes to jump higher and to use their gifts to achieve greater goals…to help others.
Please…she needs your help to succeed!
Have a great weekend everyone!
