A half and a whole....lotta running.
That's right, Henry runs!
On October 15 I'll be running a half marathon and Henry will be running a whole marathon. A whole marathon. 26.2 miles of pure bliss and expletives. It will help that we're running in one of our favorite places - Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, AND more importantly, Atlantic puffins.
As Henry says, we're giving purpose to something pointless by fundraising for the Mt. Desert Island Unified Basketball Team. The unified sport partners special education students [athletes] with regular education students [partners] and uses rules slightly different than the traditional version of the sport. The aim is to promote social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences.
So, friends and family, cough it up.
$1,000 is our goal, but I'm sure we can do better. After all, if Henry can run 26.2 miles, Christmas miracles can happen early this year.
And we know what you're all thinking, so we're also accepting $50 he-doesn't-make-it-to-mile-20 "bets."
As always, thanks for your love and support.
