BENEFITING: ALL CHILDRENS HOSPITAL FOUNDATION INC

EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2012

Mileage Tracker: 1,444

D. Glenn Trail III

THE STORY:

My New Year's Resolution this year was simple, I wanted to run miles, lots of miles. 1,200+ to be exact or 100 miles per month. As the year has progressed it became clear that I was going to surpass that number if I stayed on my current pace, and reach closer to 1,400 miles.

Then something hit me, while my miles are doing me wonderful benefits for my own personal health, I wanted my miles to mean something for others. Keeping with what I started last year of raising money for a charity in my local community, I came up with this idea.

Since my 2012 running year began with Resolution Run for RJ, benefitting the young high school student diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This whole year I have worn my bracelet supporting RJ's fight, and it reminds me daily of the real battles in life. I also have spent the past two and a half years working as a Baseball Coach for Lexington, KY's Miracle Baseball League. The League hosts a Fall and Spring Baseball season for Special Needs Children between the ages of 5-17. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life but it also reminds me of the constant healthcare needs many of my own players have over the years. 

Thus I want to raise money for the All Children's Hospital Foundation which has a location right near my house in Sarasota. I start my challenge again via Twitter, Facebook, Word of Mouth, etc. to get people to help me make my miles count towards something greater than just personal achievement.

Regardless of how much money I raise, I am going to set my own contribution to $140 or ten cents per mile I ran this year.
