Hi Friends and Family! Yest…
Hi Friends and Family!

Yesterday was the big day, and oh what a day it was! I finished the NYC Half Marathon in 1 hour 55 minutes and 29 seconds, and enjoyed every minute of it. It was such a treat running through Manhattan, one of my mom's favorite places, and when I passed some of her favorite spots, like the Central Park Boathouse, I smiled and totally knew she was there running with me. Also, every time I passed a cheering friend or family member on the course, or thought about all of these generous donations, I got such an extra spring in my step! It was these happy moments that really pushed me to the finish line.

I enjoyed myself so much yesterday, that I know this will be only the first of many future races for me. Spoken word poet Sarah Kay has said, "Getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air." Well, I sure got the wind knocked out of me when mom left us, but after starting to run, I now know how much my lungs like the taste of air... So, I'm going to keep on running for a long long time!

Thank you to the greatest family, friends, and community in the world. Including matching corporate gifts, together we raised over $20,000. What a testament to the number of lives mom touched while she was here with us. I feel confident that these donations will somehow help spare another family this heartache, so mom will keep on touching more lives from wherever she is now.

All my love and thanks,

Hi Mercer Family, Thank you …
Hi Mercer Family,
Thank you very much for your donation. I am so amazed by how quickly my email and the link to this site got around, and I can hardly believe the activity on this page since. I am absolutely overwhelmed by everyone's generosity! It really speaks wonders to how special Chatham is, and how great mom was.
I am confident that sometime in the future these donations will help spare another family this sorrow, but in the mean time, they are really helping me get through training! Thank you for that!
With thanks,
