BENEFITING: Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund
I am running my very first marathon! I will be participating in the Philadelphia Marathon on November 19, 2017. My running habit has so far included several half marathons, and the time to make the jump to the full length run is here. No time like the present! To motivate me through my training and keep me going at mile 20, I am raising money for a wonderful local charity called the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund (KADMF).
"KADMF lightens the burdens and lifts the spirits of families caring for children with serious illnesses, disabilities, and injuries. They provide financial assistance for needs not covered by insurance, Family Fun Day programs, and financial management education to families in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware."
As a KenCrest speech therapist working with families and children with developmental and medical needs in Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties, I have personally accessed the resources that KADMF provides on behalf of my families. I have seen the difference this resource makes when other resources have been exhausted. Families I know have been able to purchase adaptive equipment/augmentative communication devices. They have attended Family Fun Day programs where they can enjoy time together in an environment where the needs of their child are planned for. However, KADMF can only provide support commensurate with the donations they receive. Please help me to help them make a difference for more families in our area.
