BENEFITING: ST LUKES EPISCOPAL-PRESBYTERIAN HOSPITAL

EVENT: Leadville 100

EVENT DATE: Aug 18, 2012

THE STORY:

$5000 MATCHING CHALLENGE...PUTTING OUR MONEY WHERE OUR FEET ARE! SEE BELOW.

The Leadville 100 Trail Run is one of the most grueling ultramarathons in the world . . . and it will be the toughest and longest run I have ever faced.  But it is nothing compared to the physical, mental, spiritual and financial challenges cancer patients and their families encounter.  That's why I have partnered with the amazing people at The Life & Hope Fund to raise money to help those indviduals and families who find themselves in a seemingly hopeless situation without the resources to get the care they so desperately need.  Hope.  Life.  Thank you very much for helping make both of those things possible!

The Life & Hope Fund is based in St. Louis at St. Luke's Hospital (where The Incredible Tami Strand works!) and was established to ensure that patients with cancer lacking adequate financial resources have access to quality medical care.  Over 90% of your donation goes directly to those in need.   Over   

The Leadville 100 Trail Run (aka The Race Across The Sky) is a 100-mile ultramarathon held August 18-19, 2012 on trails and dirt roads near Leadville, CO, through the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Runners in the race climb and descend 15,600 feet, with elevations ranging between 9,200-12,620 feet. It is common for less than half the starters to complete the race within the 30 hour time limit.  You start at 4 AM.  You do not stop to sleep.  You run.  All day.  All night.   You    

Eric Strand (hey, that's me!) lives, works and trains in St. Louis, MO.  I have run over 30 marathons including Boston, Chicago, Grandma's, St. Louis, Flagstaff and Pikes Peak (including a brutal and bloody Double in 2011) . . . but I have never run one to raise $$ for charity.  Why now?  Why The Life & Hope Fund?  Few of us have gone through our lives without losing someone dear to cancer.  This has hit particularly close to our family over the past decade.  It's time to do something more than write a check every once in awhile . . . it's time to ask you to join me in writing a check or pulling out a credit card to lend a hand!  I have met with the caring people at The Life & Hope Fund and know they will use our $$ to spread hope and save lives.

Thank you so much for your support!

Eric

P.S. Tami and I will match donations dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $5000. So, act now and double the effectiveness of your generous gift!
