EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016
I've entered the Eversource Hartford Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K (you know which race I'm running :-) on behalf of Connecticut Children's Medical Center! I'm a proud member of Team CT Children's, and I'm inviting you to support my efforts! Team CT Children's is dedicated to running and raising funds to support Connecticut Children's Medical Center. All donations directly support CCMC and their mission to give children and families the care they deserve.
You all know what CCMC means to our family. The brilliant Dr. Jeffrey Hyams has been Emily's gastroenterologist since she was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at 9 years old. Em has suffered, and endured, through trials that could easily have broken most people. We believe the combination of skill, caring, and support from those at CCMC, along with the love and care from Emily's family and friends, and undoubtedly Em's own INDOMITABLE SPIRIT are what have allowed Em to flourish within the incessant demands of a vicious disease like Crohn's. We are committed to supporting CCMC and their mission to improve the physical and emotional health of children through family-centered care, research, education and advocacy.
I'm not a competitive person. Aside from a personal best to improve the time on my last 5K, my plan is to finish this race with the knowledge that my efforts to raise awareness and funds for this admirable cause will be victory enough. I need your help. Can you make a small donation? Would you consider sharing this link with any of your social networks? Thank you in advance for anything you can contribute! My gratitude is yours, and I thank God for the blessing of your friendship.
