Last Week of Fundraising
May 31, 2016

Hello, all!  This is the last week in which I will be fundraising for Bailee and her family. Race #3 is this Saturday with the Dirty Kanza in See More

THE STORY:

Bailee is a 3 year old girl living in the Houston, TX, area with her parents, Todd and Kerrilee, and her little sister, Joanna Grace. Bailee has Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. In October 2015, she was also diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia and is currently undergoing treatment through Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. I met Bailee and her family through the organization I Run 4, a group that pairs runners with individuals affected by disabilities in order for the runner to run in honor of the individual and his/her family. I have been blessed to have been Bailee's runner for almost 2 years now. It has been a joy getting to watch her grow and learn and be loved by her amazing family and support group. Her current chemotherapy and general cancer care are costly, and I have had several people ask me how best to support the Malmgren family as they help Bailee to fight leukemia. I run 4 Bailee. I wear her name on my shoes and in my heart any time I go out and run. As a result, I have decided to set up a running fundraiser with all proceeds going directly towards the Malmgren family for Bailee's medical expenses. I have three races coming up: the El Dorado Half Marathon in April, the Lincoln Half Marathon in May, and the 50-mile portion of the Dirty Kanza bike race in June. I am asking my amazing supporters and loved ones to help me raise $333/ race, equaling almost $1000 for sweet Bailee. 3 races. $333/race. All for one rocking 3 year old. Will you consider sponsoring this running fundraiser and supporting Bailee and the Malmgren family during her medical treatment? Any donation amount is greatly appreciated and will go straight to Bailee. I will do my best to keep sponsors updated, both on my Bailee and my running journeys for her. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this page and for considering a donation towards this running fundraiser!
