#IMforAsh Supporter,
I wanted to thank you for your incredible donation to IRONMAN for Ashley benefiting Riley Hospital for Children. Although the race was already two weeks ago, I am still in shock at the amount of support my family and I received leading up to the race. It was definitely the most humbling experience I have ever had. Our most important goal of the #IMforAsh campaign was to raise awareness and excitement for Riley Hospital, Indiana University Dance Marathon, and the ALC Legacy. When I recount the 5 month campaign, I truly believe we were able to accomplish just that. Second to the awareness was raising funds that would directly impact our kids and families at Riley Hospital for Children. When all of the dust settles and several of our offline donations are factored in, we will have raised over $53,000!!!!
When you decided to provide support for #IMforAsh, you weren’t just supporting my relentless efforts to complete an IRONMAN in memory of my sister. You became a part of things MUCH bigger than that. First, you became a part of the Indiana University Dance Marathon Family. IUDM is the nation’s largest Children’s Miracle Network Dance Marathon and the largest student organization at IU. The students involved in this organization deserve the world! Secondly, you became a part of the Riley Hospital for Children family. Riley continues to be one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation. Over 90% of Indiana children effected with cancer receive treatment at Riley. The most incredible part about this hospital is that it is entirely comprehensive. Donations like ours are what keep this hospital running so that no family can ever be turned away from providing their child with treatment. Lastly, you became a part of the ALC Legacy. For those that have followed IUDM since her passing, we all know this is a very powerful thing. Because of the type of person she was, her legacy will always have the ability to change the world. Ashley truly lived a life in the service for others, and I believe her legacy instills the motivation and inspiration for us to do the same.

From my entire family, THANK YOU for your supporting #IMforAsh.

#IMforAsh by the numbers:

Gene, Thank you for the ki…
Gene,

Thank you for the kind note, that was very inspirational. Even more, thank you for the extremely generous donation to IMforAsh!! I was very humbled to see your name next to a contribution of $100. As you can probably guess, we have been very pleased with how well this fundraiser has gone so far, but we know there is a much larger impact we can still make. I hope you continue to follow and help us spread the word to others so that they may have the opportunity to support the Kids as well. You know as well as I do that the more people we reach the more awareness we can spread for not only Riley Hospital, but also for the legacy of ALC. Any and all help we can get is much appreciated!

I hope you're doing well otherwise! It seems like you've had quite the past year or so--I've seen a lot of pictures. You're a pretty lucky individual to be able to do that kind of traveling and work. Congrats and I wish you all the best. Feel free to ask me if I want to join next time you head off to Dubai or something :)

Thanks again Gene! Keep watching---big things to come FTK and ALC!!!!
