BENEFITING: C2 MISSION

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

Tracey and Melinda Klein

THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

When we ran our first 5k, a small race in the town of our local high school, in 2003, we had no idea that it would be the first of many. Since then we have lined up at start lines in the 5 boroughs of New York City, Buffalo, Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C, San Francisco, Cape Cod and Philadelphia. We’ve gone through countless numbers of sneakers and have seen many amazing sunrises training along the Charles River, through Central Park, down Dune Road and around the village of Panchkula, India. Through the now incalculable miles, our inspiration to keep running has come from the resiliency of others we witness everyday and an appreciation of our own good health. This year we have a very special opportunity to run the Boston Marathon in support of The C2 Mission.

The C2 Mission is a foundation created to benefit children and families affected by Cerebral Palsy and Cystic Fibrosis.

Cerebral palsy, also referred to as CP, is a term used to describe a group of chronic conditions affecting body movement and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to one or more specific areas of the brain, usually occurring during fetal development; before, during, or shortly after birth; or during infancy. Faulty development or damage to motor areas in the brain disrupts the brain's ability to adequately control movement and posture. It is estimated that some 764,000 children and adults in the United States manifest one or more of the symptoms of cerebral palsy. Currently, about 8,000 babies and infants are diagnosed with the condition each year. In addition, some 1,200 - 1,500 preschool age children are recognized each year to have cerebral palsy. (From United Cerebral Palsy)

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs, leading to life-threatening lung infections, and obstructs the pancreas, stopping natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. About 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis are diagnosed each year. The predicted median age of survival for a person with CF is in the late 30s. (From Cystic Fibrosis Foundation)

The C2 Mission is one of hope. The goals of the program include independent fundraising, assisting CF and CP charities with existing fundraisers, and a very special “Pick Me Up” program, offering financial assistance, providing self-esteem boosters, and striving to bring smiles to the faces of individuals affected with CF and CP.

Please support our fundraising efforts by making a donation. Checks payable to C2 Mission can also be mailed to:
