EVENT: 2013 GO! For A Cause
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2013
There is an amazing place in St. Louis called HavenHouse. HavenHouse St. Louis provides the comfort of home and a community of support to patients and their loved ones traveling to St. Louis for medical care. They serve ALL ages, ALL illnesses, from all medical centers.
In 2010 I started running. My son was a year old and I wanted to teach him about being healthy. My first race was the Mother’s Day 5K. It was such a special race for me having my son waiting at the finish line. After that race I decided to run a half marathon. The training was long and the race was challenging. I said I would never do it again. However, when Lindsey asked me to run this race with her for Team Havenhouse I could not say no. I am more then excited to complete this challenge. This time I am running for all the Havenhouse patients and loved ones. This time I hope to teach my son about giving to others.
Thank you for taking time to read a little about why this event is so important to me! I am asking that if you are able to donate (even the smallest amount) to these families at Havenhouse please do. To my family members- In lieu of giving me a Christmas gift this year, please donate to Havenhouse instead. Thank you so much.
