Hello all!

This past Sat., Aug. 30 I completed my 10K through the runDisney, thanks to your generous, selfless donations & sponsorships!

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, so don't forget to show your support & GO GOLD!

Our team of 30 runners, TEAM GOTEBB, raised over $80,000 from the runDisney event! HOW COOL IS THAT?

EBB Foundation (ebbfoundation.org/) already gave Phx. Children's Hospital (phoenixchildrens.org/medical-specialties/center-for-cancer-blood-disorders/camp-rainbow) $36,00 which allowed 30 children to attend Camp Rainbow this summer. EBB Foundation is also donating the remaining money raised to St. Baldricks Research for Childhood Cancer (stbaldricks.org/) this month.

EBB Foundation is the result of one of my dearest friends Heidi Blair & her family's daughter, Elizabeth Brooklyn Blair (EBB), who recently had to go through the battle with stage IV cancer. Her battle began too young at age 5. Now, at age 8, she is cancer-free. However, the battle doesn’t end with Elizabeth. In 2014, an estimated 15,780 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer and 1,960 will lose the battle.

During each of my 6.2 miles, I thought of Elizabeth, this rancid disease that is called cancer, how many people it has taken hold of, and of my own family & friends who are currently battling this terrible disease or have already lost the battle.

I finished strong but my legs weren't carrying me, the idea of HOPE was. I HOPE that one day I won't have to ask you for donations to help find a cure. I HOPE it will be defeated for good. I HOPE you need have to feel its pain.

My grandmother had cancer, my grandfather died before the age of 60 because of cancer, my step-father died from cancer, my close friend Horst currently has cancer, my great aunt & uncle had cancer... the list goes on & on. TOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR BATTLE WITH CANCER!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for sponsoring my run. Your donation, no matter how large or small, helped make a huge dent in finding a cure & making children feel special.

My goal was set at the minimum requirement it takes to send one child to Camp Rainbow - $1,200. Thanks to you I raised $2,500! Congratulations and thank you, again!!!

Peace, Love, & Rainbows,

Megan Wahl on behalf of EBB Foundation

*PS I couldn't attach a photo in this email but I uploaded it to my main sponsor page on Crowdrise.com and I will post it on my personal Facebook page so be on the lookout for that!

Hi Nancy,

I know you have a lot on your plate, so I truly appreciate you taking the time to donate to my run and support this amazing opportunity!

I know you understand the importance firsthand of sending children to Camp Rainbow, donating to research, and hopefully getting one step closer to demolishing childhood cancer and other related illnesses.

I love you dearly!

Thank you!

Peace. Love. Mickey Mouse!
