BENEFITING: Arthritis Foundation

EVENT DATE: Oct 24, 2010

Debbie Panek

THE STORY:

On October 24th I'll be running the only marathon that starts in one country and ends in another: from Buffalo, NY, USA, to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. October 24, 2010 will also be the 4th anniversary of my brother Dave's passing, and so I'd like to honor his life and spirit by raising money for the Arthritis Foundation over the next month. Dave struggled with rheumatoid arthritis from childhood, but never let it define him.

While my first instinct was to aim for $262 (a dollar per mile), it occurred to me that Dave would have turned 52 this October, so it seemed fun to double that amount! I only learned recently about crowdrise, so I have barely a month to spread the word and try and celebrate Dave in a way I think he'd especially appreciate :-) This site makes fundraising pretty darn easy though, so if you would be willing to contribute any amount at all, thank you!
