BENEFITING: UNITY HEALTH SYSTEM FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2012
A short while ago, a great person (Lisa) my wife and I know (she styles/cuts both our hair) and her husband (Dan) were in a very serious motorcycle accident (http://www.13wham.com/content/blogs/story/lisa-caruso-park-ave-salon-motorcycle/Xug2KoFIa0uuG2NAr2-H-w.cspx). He is finally at home, but still recovering. At last update, she remains in a coma. This cut close to home as Lisa and Dan, much like my wife and I have two young children.
In honor of Dan and Lisa, and in the hopes of helping others with injuries like Lisa's, I've decided to run this race for the benefit of the Unity Acute Rehabilitation & Brain Injury Program (http://www.unityhealth.org/acuterehab/). All funds collected will be designated to the program via the Unity Health Foundation (http://www.unityhealth.org/foundation/).
My wife and I have decided to donate as follows:
Initial Donation: $100
Fundraising Challenge: For every additional $100 raised above our initial $100 donation, we will donate another $25 (up to an additional $100). EDIT -- Full Amount donated and matched!
Performance Challenge: For every minute under 49 I run (generous term I know at that speed) we will donate another $25 (up to an additional $100). EDIT -- Official Time - 41:04! Full Amount donated! Thanks to all donors for the motivation!
Please note, that none of the funds raised via my fundraiser will go directly to Lisa and her family, if you would prefer to donate to them directly please see the flyer attached about a benefit being held on Septmber 28, 2012.
