BENEFITING: AGC SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Jan 05, 2017
I will be taking on the 2017 Dopey challenge in Disney. I will be running 48.6 miles in 4 days! Day one will be a 5k , day 2 will be a 10k day 3 will be a half marathon and day 4 will be a full marathon ! This will be my first Marathon! I am thrilled to be putting myself up for the challenge and training all year while raising money for an amazing cause. Why I run: I run for my sister and everyone out there with infertility. After watching my sister struggle for years and loose multiple babies her journey to parenthood was far from easy. I watched her and her husband hurt and struggle to become parents. I also watched her become the most amazing supporter and support system for every family out there struggling with infertility. I watched her create this amazing non profit that helps couples with scholarships, support and advocacy. Raising money for AGC and bringing awareness to infertility could not be more important to me. I run for my hero, my big sister and I run for every family who struggles with infertility. Thank you for your never ending love and support! #HopeNeverFails For more information about The AGC Scholarship foundation please visit their website and like them on Facebook! http://www.agcscholarships.org AGC SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION INC wrote - AGC Scholarship Foundation provides financial assistance to couples dealing with infertility in the US. Infertility is a disease that is often misunderstood - relaxing, drinking wine or "just adopting" doesn't cure many diseases and infertility is not an exception. Currently there are only 15 states with mandates in place that require insurance to cover treatment or portions of treatments. The average cost for treatment is $12,500 - and that's just for one cycle. Fertility preservation is an option for those diagnosed with cancer. AGC Scholarship Foundation is dedicated to all in the infertility community regardless of diagnoses, marital status, gender or race. The Hope Scholarship can be used for artificial insemination, egg and sperm donation, egg freezing, in vitro fertilization, embryo donation, gestational surrogacy and adoption.
