THE STORY:

Colleen M. Schwartz  7/3/1955 - 4/8/2013

My mom, my hero, Colleen "Coco" Schwartz, had a motto "go big or go home". If you are going to do something, you better blow the expectations out of the water. She also raised me to value experiences over things and time with family is time well spent. So the idea was born to "go big or go home" by running a half marathon, in Disney World, with my sister. Kelsey, my older sister, has already secured her spot to run the Wine and Dine Half Marathon in Disney World, however, I have not, and I'm going to need a little help. 

This is where you come in. 

I need your help to raise $1200 for Sparrow's Nest [a 501(c)3 charity]. Their mission is cooking and delivering meals to the families of moms with cancer in many areas of the Hudson Valley in New York. They provide 2 homemade trays of food to their recipients each week.

One of the hardest experiences in my life was watching my mom battle cancer. When the end was finally approaching, we surrounded this classy lady, who was the backbone of the Schwartz family, with love while she passed away at home. The last thing on our minds while she layed in a hospice bed in our home was what we were going to do for dinner. The help we received, in the form of food, from our neighbors, our church, and our family and friends helped more than words can express. Now I hope you haven't had to go through this, but if you have, you know leaving your loved one's bedside to go to the grocery store just really doesn't feel like an option. So teaming up with Sparrow's Nest can't be a coincidence. I have directly benefitted from the same service Sparrow's Nest offers, and it may seem small, but I promise it makes a difference.

I hope you consider donating to help me "GO BIG" so I can run with my sister in honor of our mom.
