BENEFITING: CANTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2014
As you may or may not be aware my family lost our mom 2 years ago to a ruptured brain aneurysm. She was a model example of giving back to her community, especially known for running her local community's soup kitchen. Our family is in the process of establishing an endowment fund to provide scholarships to students in her local community who demonstrate a commitment to community service.
I was scheduled to run the Free Press Marathon in 2012 but my mom passed on October 25th of that year and it wasn't in the cards for me. It has taken me 2 years to build up the courage to run it again and this time I have convinced two close friends to keep me company. Thanks Amy and Mel!!!
This Amy's first half marathon and she is rocking her training. I am hoping that you will join me in raising funds and maybe a little shout out to Amy who has helped me put one foot in front of the other and get back into the mindset needed to complete the half marathon.
My entire family thanks you for your consideration. WE CAN DO THIS.
