I’m excited to share that I am running in the SHAPE Women’s Half-Marathon on Sunday, April 15th! I’ve been working towards this run and now I’m finally going for it. For each one of the 13.1 miles that I run, I will be raising $$$ to support Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (licadd.com).
LICADD means so much to me because addiction has affected my family in a very personal way. I lost my brother, my best friend Sean P. Russo, to this horrific disease on April 26,1996. I made a vow that I would never stop honoring my BIG brother. I have chosen to honor Seans's memory by helping others who suffer from the devastating effects of addiction.
It doesnt just affect the person who's going through it themselves. The family is now left with questions like "What could I have done differently?" I know most of us have been through similar experiences, possibly you might know a close friend who has suffered, family member who is batteling, or have just lost someone you love to addiction.
To show my appreciation for your donation to my run, my company, DASHA® will send you a gift certificate for a complimentary 30 Minute Quick Stress-Buster Massage for any donation over $50. My deadline for collecting donations is 4/10/18, and the sooner you can donate, the sooner I’ll reach my goal. Can I count on you to help me reach my goal?
If this feels like a cause you can support, donating is easy! Just click here and follow the easy steps. For the 2 minutes it takes you to complete the tasks you could be saving someones life!
Thank-you in advance for your support, and please feel free to share this with your friends, family, and co-workers.
