BENEFITING: VISION OF CHILDREN

EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2013

THE STORY:

The Vision of Children Foundation is so lucky to have Melody Gunner fundraising for us as she trains to run her 2nd marathon! Please support HER while supporting US!

26.2 MILES?! She and all of our runners deserve your support to cheer them through each and every mile!

In Melody's words...

I forgot how much I love to run :-)  My oldest daughter asked me to run in Grandmas Marathon with her last November and I thought she was crazy.  Why would I want to run my first Marathon at 52 years old?  I started to run on the treadmill at the gym and worked myself up to 5 miles and thought maybe a marathon.  Signed up for Grandmas in January and was committed to training and finishing the Marathon. 

After the Marathon I thought I’d really like to run for a charity.  I began with the Urban Wildland Half Marathon in August that was in my hometown.  The proceeds and donations go to the Woodlake Nature Center for our schools.  After completing the Half Marathon I wanted to keep running and looked for a charity that I could support while running in the TCM.  Vision of Children was heavy on my heart.  Their mission is to cure hereditary childhood blindness and other vision disorders, and to improve lives of visually impaired individuals and their families.  We had a child that had Trisomy 18 and lived a short life but made a huge impact in our life.  We were blessed with hospice care during that time and it improved our life and made that time more manageable.  By supporting Vision of Children you would be helping support a worthy cause!  Improving lives!  It doesn’t get any better than that!  God Bless!


Thank you for letting me run for Vision Of Children!
