BENEFITING: KELLSIES HOPE FOUNDATION INC NFP
My name is Lina Vasquez's and the reason why I am asking you for your support is.... This year marks my 3rd anniversary since I ran my first run Disney 5k. Since that first race I have logged many miles as my Physical theraphy. Tinkerbell 5k, Tinkerbell 1/2 (an accomplishment many told me I could not achieve) and Disneyland 10K which I ran with a charity. This is when I decided to run not just for me but for those who can no longer run. Something I myself thougt was imposible. This year I chose an organization close to my heart as a parent myself and as a parent volunteer. Kellsie's Hope Foundation helps families dealing with the toughest battle that childhood cancer can bring. This year as an anniversary gift after 7 years shunt revision free (a Shunt due to living with hydrocephalus since the age of 14) and been diagnosed with hemiparesis (since 2009) I wanted to challenge myself and run the Disneyland Dumbo Double dare a total of 19.3 miles. I know my health condition has no comparison with childhood cancer but I want the children affected by cancer to know that there are others who will be willing to run, walk, crawl if they must to raise funds to help find a cure for that most hated wordin this world "cancer". there are total strangers who are willing to donate any amount to such a needed cause. It will be a challenge but it will be worth at the end knowing I was able to complete my miles. Knowing that I have family and friends helping me complete this fundraising is what keeps me training to finish strong. Keep in mind there is no amount too small and any amount will make a big difference in many children's life. Thank you in advance for your donation! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
