THE STORY:

Most of you know the story of how I became involved with FD after my cancer treatment in 2006.  Since that time, my ongoing involvement with this organization and the young adult population it serves has continued to be a source of inspiration for me.  Life is challenging, and having cancer doesn't make it any easier.  First Descents provides an experience that helps its participants understand their own strength and to find new ways to continue facing the challenges and opportunities presented in their own lives.  In order to continue offering this experience at no cost to participants, FD is dependent upon the support of donations to do this vital work.  So I'm hoping that you'll help me raise much needed funding for FD by donating to my fundraising efforts.

I was originally planning to run the NYC marathon in the fall, but personal tragedy prevented that from happening.  I'm now training to attempt the Boston marathon in April with my sister Annie. Actually, I'll be way behind her, but hopefully we'll cross the finish line on the same day:-)  I'm not sure that I am physically capable of doing this run, but the work that FD does is important enough that I'm going to give it my best try.  I will be doing this run in loving memory of my beloved Chris "Sonic" and all the FD participants I've had the privilege of knowing over the years who are no longer living, but whose spirit and stories continue to illuminate the lives of those they have left behind.

I'm starting just in time for you to make a year-end contribution in 2011 and another in the 2012 tax year;-)  Thanks in advance for your support, financial and otherwise!
