My husband, Ryan, has been serving on the Board of Directors at The Children's Inn at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) since 2011. Located in Bethesda, The Children’s Inn is a private, nonprofit organization that serves seriously ill children and their families who are receiving medical treatment at the NIH. As a family, Ryan, Olivia, Charlotte and I have been privileged enough to participate in many fundraisers, social events, and voluteer work to support for The Inn. On Sunday, October 22, 2017, I am running the Marine Corp Marathon 10K for The Inn. As part of my participation, I have committed to raising at least $600, and I need your help. You can contribue any amount, and any contribution you choose will enable The Inn to continue to provide a place where children can play, relax with their families, and experience a sense of normalcy while participating in groundbreaking pediatric medical research. Here are a few examples of how your tax-deductible contribution can support kids and families in need: • $330 Pays for a family to stay one night at The Inn • $100 Provides a “Thoughtful Treasure” (small gift) in the mailbox of every child staying at The Inn • $50 Buys groceries for a family during a weeklong visit • $25 Purchases a week’s worth of calling cards for a family to stay in touch with family and friends back in their home states or countries To learn more about The Children’s Inn, visit www.childrensinn.org.

Thank you for your support! Love, Elizabeth
