EVENT: Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend 2013

EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2013

THE STORY:

**UPDATED GOAL** $750!! **

Vision of Children VERY much appreciates Erick running the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon for us! We asked him what his motivation is.

In his words...
My brother is my inspiration to run. For many years he was limited to the joys of life because of his asthma. Despite doctor's orders one day he went out for a run, since that day he hasn't stopped running. He recently finished his first half marathon with great time. I enjoy running with him, and love running for a cause. I feel Illnesses and disorders will limit us to many things in life, but with the right motivation and help one can accomplish so much more than expected. I run for charity because it keeps me running gives me motivation to go the distance.

I had really poor vision growing up and it was extremely tough in school, not wanting to wear glasses, or even affording them at some point. Just last year I had PRK surgery--couldn't do Lasik due to the thickness of my cornea. Being able to see perfect when you go to sleep and when you wake up is something I can't see living without anymore.

I do hope I can raise the money for these children fighting blindness.

Dear Erick, Your story is a truly inspiring. To be honest your acts of generosity and goodwill in your vision to raise money for charity don't surprise me. Ever since I've known you have done nothing but display the same generosity and kindness to the people that surround you everyday. I think that's a true testament to the kind of goodhearted person you are. I will dedicate my season opening performance against the Vikes to you Erick.
