THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family,

I will be running my second Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC on April 2nd to raise money for Project Alive & Kicking (PAK) (www.projectaliveandkicking.org).

PAK is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that my wife helped found that aims to empower expectant mothers by educating them about healthy pregnancies and pregnancy complications. 

With your incredible help and support, PAK raised more than $40,000 at last year’s race.  Please support me this year and help me achieve my personal fundraising goal of $20,000.  

PAK accomplished so much this past year!

To start, PAK was recognized by the Huffington Post, and chosen for its Next Ten campaign, as a charity that will take us into the future!  One of its co-founders, Connie Hosker, was profiled and featured in the HuffPost on becoming an advocate for stillbirth prevention.  The CDC also selected PAK as a resource for stillbirth!

On the ground, PAK vastly expanded its website, public relations efforts and social media presence (informative, newsworthy posts appear almost daily on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook) and created and launched its first educational video.  Members of PAK also engaged with doctors, health care professionals and medical organizations across the country to further its educational mission, and PAK’s Medical Advisory Committee welcomed two new members, including a leading maternal fetal specialist!

PAK continues to support cutting-edge research such as that of cord specialist Dr. Jason Collins and placenta specialist Dr. Harvey Kliman of Yale University.  Cord and placenta issues are two major causes of pregnancy complications and stillbirth.

And for the coming year, PAK has a big agenda to continue and expand its media, public relations and medical community efforts.  As always, PAK will keep abreast of cutting edge pregnancy research, and will seek to engage with doctors and health care providers who can further its mission.  PAK will also create its first mobile application, which will enable expectant mothers with kick counting, a pregnancy checklist and a number of other tools right on their phones.  With PAK’s app, an expectant mother will be able enter a doctor’s office educated and empowered like never before!

If you happen to be in Charleston for the Bridge Run, PAK will be having a spectacular fundraising dinner following the run at one of Charleston’s premier waterfront venues, the Harborside East, which generously donated their space for the event.  Here is more information about the event:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-lowcountry-boil-baby-tickets-19535759984

Big things ahead for PAK this year, and they couldn’t (and can’t) do it all without your support.  So thank you!

With love and appreciation,

Andrew

P.S. Last year, I somehow managed to finish the 10K in under 45 minutes, which is several minutes faster than my normal pace and training time.  A year later, I’m not sure if I'll be able to match (or beat) that time, but I’ll certainly give it my all!
