Thanks for visiting my fundraising site for 2013!
This year I would like to combine my newly refound love of running with the opportunity to honor those afflicted with Alzheimer's and the compassionate people who care for them. In addition, my goal would be to raise a significant amount of money for Alzheimer's research so that no one has to suffer or watch people suffer from this debilitating disease.
The goals of this project are (and please help!!):
- One thousand $10 donations in honor of someone with Alzheimer's or a special care giver - total $10,000
- One thousand miles of training and race runs by 12/31/2013
- One thousand names of Alzheimer's patients and care givers to carry with me on training and race runs
To start off 2013, I will be running a half marathon on New Year's Day with my daughters Christina and Ashley. I will be running in honor of my grandfather. Martin Peterman, and my aunt, Margaret Morrison. Also inspiring me will be their care givers who have shown me what true love and compassion can be: Mary Peterman, Carl Waite and Phyllis Waite.
Please email me with any questions or to add names to my running tribute list. Names of Alzheimer's patients will be honored with purple ribbons. Care givers will have their names added to white ribbons. Green ribbons will be added with donor's names. Email address is: Thousandmilesofmemories@yahoo.com
I will be blogging my progress and the memories made during this 2013 journey at http://1000milesofmemories.wordpress.com/
Thanks and have a happy and healthy 2013!!
