I am running in support of a charity that works toward making it possible for families to stay together while caring for a child with a chronic illness. Spending days, weeks, or months in the hospital to care for loved ones is challenging, especially when the patient is your child. There is a large financial burdon placed upon families when they must travel to stay by their childs side for medical care. Not only must these families take time off work, but they must also travel to areas away from their home for prolonged periods.
Never Give Up Ever is a Burlington-based nonprofit providing support to the families of children in long-term care at UVM Children’s Hospital. To accomplish this, they help families make rent payments, car payments, assists with grocery bills etc. By running the Vermont City Marathon on behalf of Never Give Up Ever I am hoping to raise awareness and money for this cause. I appreciate any help!
