I always wanted to run a 5K... and I found a great cause... the only problem is, I'm seriously out of shape from 2 babies, laziness and stress.
But the great thing about 5Ks for charity is... it doesn't matter if you win, or even run. My friend Meira, when she asked me to join the race, said, "I'm not running, I'm walking, b/c that way I can RUN my mouth." =)
So a group of us girls will be walking the 5K, running our mouths, and raising money for the Jewish Caring Network. It is an organization that supports families with sick loved ones. They help financially, send flowers, arrange for childcare, all sorts of stuff.
You may know we faced a REALLY scary hospital situation with Aviel about a year ago... febrile seizures. (Google it.) Thank G-d, they are fairly common, most of the time harmless.. but it gave me a glimpse into what it would be like to have a sick child.
These families need help. Each in different ways. Some financially. Some need help arranging childcare and meals (imagine if a mother of 6 were in the hospital indefinitely). Some just need to be cheered up with flowers or a visit.
So please donate $10 or more. I really appreciate it!
