BENEFITING: Children's Harbor Inc
On April 26th, 2017 my friends, Dylan and Allison Carney, welcomed Thaddeus Marlon Carney to the world. After a month of fighting, this precious child passed away at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, AL. To honor the memory of Thaddeus, I will be running the Memphis St. Jude Marathon on December 2nd.
While Thaddeus was at Children's, his extended family who traveled in greatly benefited from the services provided at Children's Harbor, and it is in Thaddeus' name that I will be donating my funds raised to this non-profit organization.
Children's Harbor provides activities and services for patients of Children's Hospital and their families to break away from their long term hospital stays. Services include patient and sibling activities as well as support through counseling care and educational resources. They also use their Lake Martin campus to host camping and retreat services through partnering organizations, providing patients and families a place of rest and restoration. It offers patients and their families a place to come together and reconnect, often outdoors, in a safe environment for children with various diagnoses.
My goal is to raise $2620 - $100 per mile - can you sponsor a part of my journey? Even $10 would get me 1/10 of a mile closer to the finish line! Thank you for your support!
