12 Days To Go Until the NYC Marathon!
October 25, 2016
We are excited to be able to raise both financial support and awareness on behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation of America! As many of you know, our sweet daughter, Reagan, has battled epilepsy since she was 2 years old. We have learned much about this condition through Reagan, and we hope to take this opportunity to raise awareness of a condition that many people know little about. In addition, we and some of our friends will be running in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon in Reagan's honor! We call our group #reagansrunners.
As part of our effort to raise much-needed funding for the Epilepsy Foundation, we humbly ask for your financial support of our campaign in whatever amount you may feel led to contribute. Since our effort to raise funds and awareness involves running a marathon (26.2 miles), we suggest that a contribution in the amount of $26.20 would be meaningful. All donations through this page will go directly to the Epilepsy Foundation of America. While we are not tax professionals, your donation may also be tax deductible. Consult your tax professional for details.
Even if you are not inclined to contribute financially, would you please take a moment and pray for Reagan and the millions of other people around the world who fight epilepsy? Please also pray that a cure will soon be found to totally eliminate the condition. Thank you so much for your support and may God bless and keep you! Hebrews 12:1-3
We will update the status of our efforts regularly, so please check back often.
