THE STORY:

I am running my first marathon on November 13th- the Soldier's Marathon in Columbus, GA (26.2 miles!). Have done a few half-marathons, but the full is a first! Would you please consider supporting my efforts and help me to raise money for a good cause at the same time? Any donation is GREATLY appreciated and 100% of all funds go to ConnectAbility (after the 5% this web site deducts for its services, plus a $1 transaction fee for this web site). Many of you may know of its programming that started with SIDEKICKS at the Dahlonega Baptist Church and has grown since. I became part of it when I first starting bringing my daughter to respite nights... and they are AWESOME... and then went on to teach for the summer VBS camps for special needs adults and now serve on the Board of Directors. Maybe can you consider donating $1/mile? See the story of what this money will go for below....

ConnectAbility is an organization based in Dahlonega, Georgia that is committed to providing quality community supports for children and adults with special needs. Current activities include Sidekicks: monthly respite care nights for adults and children with disabilities and their siblings to enjoy a themed evening of games, snacks and crafts. Vacation Bible School is offered in the summer for adults and children with special needs. ConnectAbility is now the local coordinator for Special Olympics and provides athletic opportunities for all ability levels. All activities are provided free of charge to families and are staffed by committed volunteers.

Families affected by disability in our area have limited support resources and ConnectAbility is dedicated to expand those resources with excellent programs. Partner with us to make it happen!

NOTE: Stepping Stone Farm donated its 501 (3)c account to ConnectAbility and it is currently being renamed in the IRS database. Thus, this fundraiser is for ConnectAbility and all funds go to ConnectAbility, but the tax ID# name is still listed above with Stepping Stone Farms.
