BENEFITING: Children's Miracle Network
ORGANIZER: Children's Miracle Network
I have registered to run the 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon at Disneyworld. Aside from the challenge of training for the run, I also wanted to FUNdraise!
Every year Disney provides a number of groups the opportunity to raise money for their charity. I selected the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals because their mission is something that I hold near and dear--Raising funds for the benefit of children who are hospitalized!
As many of you know, in March 2014, my nephew, Nicolas, was born two months premature. He remained in the NICU for six weeks and by the grace of God he grew stronger each day. During his time in the NICU, he was surrounded by love and a talented group of medical professionals. My brother and his wife, Rose, were with Nicky each day and, as you can imagine, they were faced with many personal and emotional challenges. But, they persevered and grew in their faith and love for one another.
I decided that if I was going to run a Half Marathon, I should also try to do GOOD by raising some money for a great charity which helps children, like my nephew!
Please help me reach my goal to raise $1,000. All donations are greatly appreciated!
