Hi family and friends! ^.^
This Thanksgiving I will be running in "A Better World Running" Half Marathon in hopes to raise enough funds for Project Linus. All proceeds will help to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or in need through handmade blankets. On this upcoming holiday, pause and give thanks for all your blessings but also consider helping a child who is in dire need of the one thing we take for granted and that is love.
Children are considered the promise in the world yet their lives are more difficult now than they have been in the past. The current population of homeless children in the United States is just a little over 300 million… to give you an idea of the enormity of the numbers; and about 10,450 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with a terminally ill disease in 2014.
Please show your support by donating, sharing or cheering me on November 27th in Santa Monica as I run my first marathon. (eek!)
Thank You and God bless
