I have been a life long runner but my body is not very happy about all of my running so I have taken up skiing and cycling and swimming so that I can run once or twice a week and still do fun events. I set a goal for my 50th year to run Grandma's Marathon, Twin Cities Marathon and cross country ski the Birkebiener 50k. I just successfully completed that.
Now heading into my 51st year I would like to do that again, but with a larger purpose. So I am very excited to partner with Still Kickin'! Many of us go through a tough time in our lives, whether it is illness, loss of a job, losing someone close to us, abuse, etc. And most of us are able to rebound and carry on, but not always. That is where Still Kickin' and you and I can make a difference. Your support will go to support the hero of the month. Go to the website, www.stillkickin.co, and check out the stories. They are stories of dignity and strength, struggle and support. I find myself feeling that life can be overwhelming sometimes and wonder, what can I do. Well, I can support Still Kickin' because they are doing something. You can too.
I am training for the next 15 weeks, running a marathon June 16 and I also gave $100. Will you join me? Our team has a goal of raising $5000 for Still Kickin'. Can you give $10, $26.20, match my $100 or $1000? Any amount is helpful. And you are helping someone else.
