Sundra (Sunny) Beal
Hi Family and Friends!! I have found myself at the beginning of a new mission. A 26.2 mile adventure! I am running in the 2014 NYC Marathon in November! It sounds long, but that is just a matter of distance/time. The real adventure is being a part of the "Team Hole in he Wall" gang. As a mother of 3, and special education teacher, I have always had a genuine place in my heart for children with serious illnesses and multiple disabilities.
My family has fought childhood battles of leukemia and won! We conquer each day the detours living with cerebral palsy brings. We have laughed and cried together over these struggles. Throughout it all we have been so blessed by the visions of others who choose to go one step above and make life a bit easier, and kinder, for someone striving against a childhood/lifelong illness.
Team Hole in the Wall is doing just that!!! This team is comprised of individuals teaming up to provide "a different kind of healing" to children and families who are battling serious illnesses. These individuals participate in athletic events to raise $$$ for Team Hole in the Wall. This $$ is then used to send seriously ill children to camp free of charge. Paul Newman founded The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in 1988. "It's a community that celebrates the fun, friendship, and spirit of childhood where ever kid can raise a little hell."
While I have never ran a full marathon before, I have no doubt that I will cross that finish line and make a difference in the life of a family in need while doing it.
I am committed to raising $3,000. Every contribution, regardless of size, brings me that much closer to achieving my goal. If you could make a donation that would be wonderful! If you can only send prayers of support that would be equally wonderful!! I am very grateful for both!!
I consider being able to participate in this fundraising and marathon journey a blessing!
Thank you for your support! Sunny
