Robert Lasken's Fundraiser:

Run For Those Who Roll 2014

THE STORY:

I am running the Chicago Marathon this year.  This will be my very first full marathon.

During registration, we were given the option to raise money for a charity. By going this route, I committed to raise a minimum of $1,000!

When scrolling through the list of approved charitable organizations, I stumbled across one that is close to my heart.  That is why I selected the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois.

As many of you already know, my mother is a quadriplegic. On April 10, 1986, the mobility that all of us take for granted, was taken away from my Mom.  That evening, she was driving home and was hit head-on by a drunk driver.  She suffered a serious spinal cord injury and spent three and a half months in the hospital and rehabilitation.  This really impacted our family as it significantly changes nearly everything we did in life. 

At the time, we tried to find an organization that could provide support and guidance while navigating through those tough times.  We were unable to find much of anything so had to go it on our own. 

Organizations like the Spinal Code Injury Association of Illinois are so crucial in helping people with spinal injuries and their families.  Here is a little more about the organization I selected:

The mission of SCIA is to serve as a comprehensive resource center for individuals who have spinal cord injury (resulting from trauma or condition of the central nervous system) their families, health professionals, policy makers and others interested in spinal cord injury. Activities of SCIA address major areas such as medical care, rehabilitation, research and all aspects of living with a spinal cord injury, as well as injury prevention.

Please do what you can to help me support this great organization and meet my goal for charitable fund raising.

Thank you.
