Dear Friends & Family,
As many of you know, Yelda and I lost a full term pregnancy 4 years ago due to an umbilical cord accident. Our daughter would have been 4 years old today, and we think about her often. We were shocked to learn that, in the U.S. alone, there are an estimated 26,000 babies that don't make it to their delivery day each year.
After our loss, Yelda dedicated herself to helping families avoid what we went through. She helped to start, and now helps to lead, an organization called Project Alive & Kicking (www.projectaliveandkicking.org). PAK is dedicated to empowering expectant mothers by educating them about healthy pregnancies, the possible signs of fetal distress and what they can do to help their babies come into the world thriving, alive and kicking.
After working tirelessly for almost three years, PAK recently obtained its 501(c)(3) status and is now able to fundraise. PAK is headquartered in Charleston, SC, and each Spring it participates in the city’s Cooper River Bridge Run, a 10K race that is one of the largest in the country. Over 35,000 participants run and walk over a 2.7 mile cable-stayed bridge that connects the town of Mt. Pleasant to downtown Charleston.
I will be running in this year’s Bridge Run on March 28th to raise funds for PAK. Please help me achieve my fundraising goal of $25,000.
With love and appreciation,
