THE STORY:

Hi Everyone,

I will be participating in the Lapham Peak Colorama Run/Walk on Saturday, October 3rd in Delafield, WI to honor my great niece Evelyn Grace Spytek.  Our family lost beautiful little Evie last December from complications arising from a necessary surgery as a result of a viral infection called 'Cytomegalovirus' or 'CMV' that she acquired while in utero.  Evie was only 21 months old.  

CMV is the most common viral cause of birth defects and childhood disabilities in the United States.  It can have devastating effects on an unborn child when contracted during pregnancy.  Most people have not even heard of CMV. Our goal is to change that and bring education, awareness and research to eliminate CMV.  We urge you to help us create much needed CMV awareness by telling your daughters, daughter in laws, granddaughters, friends and coworkers about CMV so they ask questions of their doctors and educate themselves about CMV.

Please click on the following link to view a video of my nephew, John, his wife, Kristen and their little Evie.

Please consider supporting my Compete 4 CMV event to raise funds for the National CMV Foundation created by John and Kristen to honor their daughter and create awareness so we can eliminate CMV.
