It's my birthday and the best thing I could receive is you to join me in helping others overcome obstacles. http://bit.ly/WnVWI1

THE STORY:

After an accident in 2004, my doctors told me running was a thing of my past, but four years later, I tackled running again. There was no overnight success. No instant gratification. No quick miracle. It was a step-by-step recovery.

In 2008, I did a few 5ks.
In 2009, I added a few 10ks.
In 2010, I added 10 mile runs and one half-marathon.
In 2011/2012 (a ten-month time period) I did four half-marathons.

On May 20, 2012, the 8th accident anniversary, I did a full marathon. That marathon was about reclaiming a day and about seeing what I can do. 

Then IM ABLE contacted me about doing the NYC marathon for them, because my philosophy of doing what I can, with what I have... because I can is similar to IM ABLE’S get up and move motto. I love what IM ABLE does for others, so I said yes.

  • I'm honored and excited to do
    a marathon that is all about others.

IM ABLE is sponsoring me to run NYC, so I don't have to rasie any money for them, but I love what they do, so I want to help them and I'd appreciate help from you, because together we can make an even bigger impact.

Plus, if you give $26 or more, you will receive
a copy of my memoir,
BECAUSE I CAN!

After you give, email JanetOberholtzer@gmail.com with your address. 

Any amount helps, click the DONATE button on the top right.
Or send a check (made out to IM ABLE) to Janet Oberholtzer,
957 Kurtz Mill Rd. Mohnton, PA 19540
 

Also, connect with me on Facebook to follow my training and to see the difference between running with 500 people through PA farmlands and with 47,000+ people through NYC!

Thank you for reading and for caring, 
Janet Oberholtzer
