July 12, 2016
EVENT DATE Jun 24, 2016
We are a group of friends running 200 miles from Bar Harbor, Maine to Portland, Maine on June 24th and 25th in the first of its kind in Maine, Rock Lobster Relay Race.
In running we hope to raise money for our 4 year-old friend Joey and his family with mounting medical bills. Joey O'Neil is an amazing little 4 year-old boy with an incredible family! He is in the middle of a challenging fight with a very aggressive cancer, neuroblastoma. He has gone through numerous treatments including chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell harvesting and transplants, with radiation and more treatments to come. Joey is one of the strongest 4 year olds we have met and his family has also been unbelievably strong.
Please help support Joey and his family during this challenging time, whether through your positive thoughts, prayers or a donation through this site.
In order to meet our $20,000.00 goal we are going to need lots of support. Below are some suggested donations based on our 200 mile race.
$10.00 = $.05 per mile $60.00 = $.30 per mile
$20.00 = $.10 per mile $80.00 = $.40 per mile
$40.00 = $.20 per mile $100.00 = $.50 per mile
$50.00 = $.25 per mile $200.00 = $1.00 per mile
Joey's family will be updating his progress on the following site: http://joeyoneil.weebly.com There will also be updates on this platform.
This race is run over about 36 hours non-stop with a team of 12. Knowing we are raising money for this spectacular family going through one of the hardest fights a family can deal with, will keep us motivated and running all night. During the race you can use the mobile app RaceJoy to track our progress and cheer us on!
Joey's family greatly appreciate your kindness and generosity.
Thanks for your support!
