BENEFITING: Miles With Maeve
I'm currently training for the Whistlestop Half Marathon in Ashland, WI on October 15. It'll be my second official major race after having Calvin and I'm hoping to set a personal record and run it in under 1:55!
I recently heard about Miles with Maeve -- an amazing organization started by Garrett and Christine McAllister after losing their sweet baby girl, Maeve, at 37 weeks. The McAllister's set out to find a way to help provide support to families during a time when they need it most. From the website: Miles with Maeve humbly borrows the formula of endurance-coached fundraising and applies it to benefit families struggling to find possibility after the loss of a child or pregnancy. You can make an important difference in a hurting family’s life by raising money for causes which provide grief counseling, keepsakes, remembrance photography, and burial gowns, all while reaching your own personal endurance milestone.
Please consider donating (in any amount!) and let me know if you'd like your funds earmarked to go to a specific cause that MWM supports (Molly Bears, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, Faith's Lodge or Little Angel Gowns).
I'm kicking off the fundraising with a personal donation because of the support we received from Faith's Lodge (not to mention the lifelong connections we made there) and the precious photos we were able to have taken because of Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.
