BENEFITING: Chorus of Westerly
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
In October I will run the Newport Half Marathon in memory of my cousin's beautiful, talented, and otherwise generally amazing wife Fal Hauser, who passed away at age 43 after a long and brave struggle with lung disease and breast cancer. She left behind not only a family but an entire community who loves and misses her dearly. She was active in many aspects of the Westerly RI community as a business owner, artist, and a volunteer in scouting, school, and the Chorus of Westerly. www.chorusofwesterly.org
The last time I saw Fal, one week before she passed, I was overcome with a desire to honor the battles she was fighting and I promised to dedicate my half marathon to her, as a small tribute. At the time I couldn't imagine that instead, I would be running in her memory.
Please consider sponsoring my run, which will be used to purchase a paver in Fal's memory for the Chorus of Westerly's Set In Stone program, which helps maintain the performance hall and support the chorus. Thank you so much!!
