BENEFITING: United Cerebral Palsy of Will County, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jan 25, 2014
I am going to run a series of 3 races in the Fox Valley area to raise money to find a cure for cerebral palsy and draw awareness about a great organization called United Cerebral Palsy. The races are January 25 which is a 5k, February 22 an 8k, and March 22 a 10k.
United Cerebral Palsy is a fantastic organization that is committed to providing a life without limitations for those people with a spectrum of disabilities, including cerebral palsy. http://ucp.org/
As most of you know, my nephew Joshua is a child who has cerebral palsy. He is a sweet, loving 7 year old who is full of life and curiosity. My sister, Christina is one of the best mom's I know and does everything within her power to make sure Joshie lives a happy and healthy life.
Anyone who knows me well knows how important raising awareness about cerebral palsy is to me. I'm making it a point to do my part in helping United Cerebral Palsy in their mission to erase the judgment in society towards those with disabilites. I hope to educate my friends, family, and anyone else willing to learn about how to help this foundation provide inclusion and help with independence for individuals living with cerebral palsy.
No donation is too small. Everything helps this great cause and I appreciate everyone taking the time to read my story!
