THE STORY:

Hello friends & family!  

Why choose Team EVMS?  Because they took a chance on me in 1989 and literally saved my life in by thinking outside the box.  All it took was one resident who wasn't afraid to put herself out there, confirmed her thoughts with tests and shared her findings with a tenured doctor.  While the findings were scary, it was a relief to know I wasn't losing my mind and while treatments may not cure it all, I had answers and a treatment plan - what a blessing!

Fast forward to June 2015...I am 100% symtom free! :-)  

I am running the Rock 'n' Roll Virginia Beach 1/2 marathon this August to raise funds and honor EVMS.  EVMS gave me hope during a time of confusion and the perpetual, "Why me". I am paying it forward so that EVMS may continue to teach their students to think outside the box to save lives.

I would REALLY appreciate your SUPPORT in the form of any donation you can make!  Donations DO make a DIFFERENCE :-)  Thanks in advance for YOUR support!!

TEAM EVMS will run and walk to the finish line at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Virginia Beach on Sunday, September 6!

But first, thanks to our coach, Jim White, each team member will receive a 12-week training program, the chance to participate in Saturday “fun runs" and more. Plus, money raised by the team will stay right here in the community because it benefits the EVMS Fund. That means more well-trained doctors and health professionals in Hampton Roads to care for you and your loved ones. It also means transitioning research quickly from the bench to the bedside to improve diagnoses and treatment of cancer, diabetes and other diseases, as well as improving the quality of life for every patient. And it means you can depend on EVMS’ highly trained specialists to continue staffing the region’s only Level 1 trauma center at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and to provide the only high-risk pregnancy care available in southeastern Virginia.

Help yourself by getting in shape with coach Jim White, and help your community by raising funds for EVMS!
