Ashley Kollme's Fundraiser:

Kollmes for Team Drea

THE STORY:

Our friend Andrea was diagnosed last year with ALS at the age of 33.  Amazingly, she has since completed a triathlon to raise money for ALS while battling the disease.  We have been inspired by her incredibly strong spirit, courage, strength, and optimism.  As anyone who encounters Andrea can tell you, her heart overflows with love and we can all feel it.  

In response to the Team Drea Challenge (read about it here), our family will participate in one race per month to raise money for the Blazeman Foundation to find a cure for ALS and care for those fighting it.  

At each event, either Doug or Ashley will race while the non-racer pushes Otto and Isabella in the Bob jogger.  Otto will be participating in the kids' fun runs as well!

Our goal is to raise $5,000 by December 31.  We will match every dollar donated toward our race series, up to $2,500.

Each stride we take training and racing symbolize how we plan to accompany Andrea on this journey, every step of the way.

January 24 - Tropical 5K, Miami, FL
