BENEFITING: March of Dimes Foundation
Dear friends and family,
For the next two and a half months, I'll be training for the Disneyland Half Marathon that will take place on September 6, 2015. In the time leading up to the race, I want to raise money for and spread awareness about March of Dimes.
This organization has special significance to my family and me because my younger brother, Matthew, was born 12 weeks premature, weighed 2 pounds, and spent the first 3 months of his life in the NICU. He was in critical condition for the duration of his stay at the hospital, and we almost lost both him and our mom following the pregnancy. Thankfully, both of them are happy and healthy today, and we consider Matthew our "miracle baby."
Sadly, not all families get to tell the same positive story that my family can. I want to be an advocate for this organization and raise funds for this cause so we can be witnesses to more success stories like ours and watch premature babies grow up into healthy kids.
This year, Matthew will be reaching a huge milestone with the start of high school. Celebrate with us by donating to a cause that helps kids like Matthew reach milestones like this one.
Thank you for your generosity!
