Hi All! Thank you for visiting my CrowdRise page! I'm so excited about this opportunity and I'm thrilled to have your support.
For those of you who don't know, I began volunteering with children and teens with intellectual and physical disabilities over 10 years ago through an organization called Bridge for Youth with Disabilities in Hudson, WI. While attending the University of Wisconsin, I worked up from a volunteer, to a co-teacher of the Adapted Fitness program. This program was a land and acquatic rehabilitation/recreation course for adults with natural or acquired disabilities. I'm still in contact with some of my 'clients' today! Recently I participated in the 2017 Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Minnesota and am ready for my next charity event - the Twin Cities Medtronic Marathon! Over the years I've ran at least 5 half marathons and have been itching to participate in a full but couldn't commit. I applied to Run for a Cause with Special Olympics Minnesota and they graciously gave me a spot on their team, with a fundraising requirement of $1,000.
Special Olympics MN is a 503(c)b charitable organization and your donations are tax deductible. Special Olympics MN offers children and adults with intellectual disabilityes year-round sports training and competition. Through Special Olympics' athletic, health and leadership programs, people with intellectual disbailities transform themselves, their communities and the world.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and consider supporting my run! If you have decided to help support Special Olympics MN though my Run for a Cause, a sincerest thank you from the bottom of my heart. God Bless!
