I want to talk to you guys about something that has affected me significantly over the past few years.
As many of you know, 4 1/2 years ago my brother Ryan passed away from bone cancer (ewings sarcoma). More recently we lost a friend of ours, Eric Westra, to bone cancer as well (osteosarcoma). Over this past winter an opportunity arose to participate in the Chicago Marathon on October 8th through Van Andel Institute purple community. Basically it works like this - Van Andel pays for my ticket to run the Chicago Marathon, and I raise $1500 for their Sarcoma research.
Both Danielle and I will be running and raising money for the event (along with many others). If you are able and feel called to give, any contributions will go a long way. All donations are tax deductible. I'm also asking for prayer as a knee injury has crippled the last 5 weeks of my training and it's very important to me to be able to run this.
