I was talking with someone recently who said one of the easiest ways to start a conversation about donations is to simply tell your story. My story may not be exciting and certainly Matthew McConaughey is not asking to play me in the story of my life (hopefully one day), but you did come to my fundraising page and not Matthew McConaughey’s, so I must be doing something right.
It starts with why I run. Running is a personal challenge that makes you realize you have capabilities you did not know existed, both mentally and physically. I went from barely running a mile to completing marathons. Now that I’ve completed my personal challenge, it is time to run for others and not myself. Through running, I can create awareness and raise money for a great cause, the CJ Foundation for SIDS. My story may not win an Academy Award, but it may one day help to eliminate the tragedy of sudden unexpected infant deaths.
I will do the hard work to train and run. In return, please consider supporting both me and the CJ Foundation.
About the CJ Foundation for SIDS:
The CJ Foundation is a national non-profit devoted to eliminating the tragedy of sudden unexpected infant deaths and early childhood deaths, supporting grieving families, advancing medical research, furthering parent and professional education, and advocating for the health and survival of all children.
