I love Make-A-Wish®. I mean, how can you not? Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. The Metro New York and Western New York chapter touches the life of a kid every 10 hours. From priceless trips to encounters with celebrities, Make-A-Wish® truly brightens the lives of children, and inspires those around them.
This year, for my 30th birthday on June 6, I'm assembling an Urban Mudder team to complete the race and raise money for Make-A-Wish®. Urban Mudder is a proud supporter of the foundation. The event, which takes place July 25 on Randall's Island in New York City, is a five-mile obstacle course. It looks like it will be somewhat difficult, but more fun than anything else.
Sign up for Urban Mudder and join #TeamRalphie. Use the promo code MAWURBANNYC15 to receive 15% off. Please note that the registration fees do not go to Make-A-Wish®.
However, all the money raised from this Crowdrise page will. My goal is $2000. I'm asking in lieu of a Facebook or Twitter post, or gift, that you please donate to our team. Every penny of your donation will help kids that are battling life-threatening medical conditions live out a wish. They may want to be a pop star for a day. They might want to meet their favorite celebrity. Maybe they just want their bedroom renovated. Make-A-Wish® makes it happen, and I hope we can all contribute to the joy that they bring to these families' lives.
Because I'm turning the big THREE-OHH (eek), I'm suggesting a $30 donation. To be honest, I'd be just as happy with $3. Whatever you can afford. Thanks so much for your time and generosity, and for helping Make-A-Wish®. See you July 25!
