BENEFITING: UnityPoint Health Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2015
I'm being extremely honest, I don't do fundraisers. However, I found out that Blank Children's Hospital would pay for my way to run the Des Moines Half Marathon if all I did was try to raise money for the children and families that they take care of everyday. I thought to myself-- hey, let me do this for someone else this time. Please help support my sister hospital and also me as I have spent many miles training for this half marathon. Running is mentally and physically exhausting and I have spent sweat, tears and a lot of pain training for this. With a severe hip flexor and internal rotator strain, I'm still going strong. Anyways--anything helps, thank you so much.
At Blank Children’s, we rely on the support of our community to deliver the best care, state-of-the-art facilities and much-needed programs for children and families. We also know the importance of activity for kids of all ages. We are excited to announce that, for the first time ever, this year Blank Children’s will partner with Zoom Performance and the IMT Des Moines Marathon to form the Blank Children’s All Stars!
If you or someone you know is interested in “going the extra mile” as a member of the All Stars team, contact Brenna Finnerty at (515) 241-6472 or email@example.com.
