Crystal and I have been doing several 5K and 10K races all over Los Angeles recently but haven't run for a charity for some time. So, we decided that our next jump in racing distance should be accompanied by an attempt to raise some money for charity as well.
Our next race is a half marathon through the streets of Hollywood, CA on April 7th 2012. A half marathon, for those of you who don't know, is 13.1 miles long. Since neither Crystal nor myself have ever run that far in competition we've decided that we should subject ourselves to this pain while raising money to help cure the diseases that cause our mothers pain.
I will be raising money for the Susan G. Koman foundation, which raises money to fight breast cancer, in honor of my mother Jan Egli, who is a breast cancer survivor.
Crystal will be raising money for the MDA, Muscular Dystrophy Association, in honor of her mother Ruth Crose, who is still battling this disease.
You can donate to Crystal's charity or my charity or both. We're hoping to raise $500 each for our respective charities. Donating to this event will raise money for the Susan G. Koman Foundation, if you wish to donate to the Muscular Dystophy Association click on our other event. Thank you for your help and generosity!
