BENEFITING: Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic, Inc.
EVENT: 2015 Across the Bay 10k
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
For the past 2 years, I have been priveledged to plan fundraising events for Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, with the goal of raising dollars for our local wish kids and closing the gap of kids who are currently waiting to receive their wishes.
Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to participate in the granting of multiple wishes and I have been inspired by the strength that these kids have, their amazing families and how wishes can positively alter the course of their lives.
I am participating in the Chesapeake 10K Accross the Bay so that on November 8th I can take the time while running/jogging/walking (or whatever my body allows me to do) across the bay- to honor the kids that are going through the unthinkable.
I have set a goal of $500, which could fund a limo ride for a shopping spree wish, which I can tell you person experience, the smiles on the children's faces of when they walk outside to find a limo waiting for them is PRICELESS.
Please help me get there!!!
