I’ve joined Team Lemon and need your help!

So I just pressed “go” on one of the biggest things I’ve ever committed to in my life.  I’m nervous, very scared but mostly hopeful that I will be able to make a difference in the coming year.   Just a couple of months ago I learned about Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.  These folks raise money for childhood cancer research—research that is very much needed for the kiddos of the world.  As I learned more about the Foundation, the grants, the research needed, something resonated with me in my core.  I am now bound and determined to do whatever I can to help these folks with their mission.

As such, I have just made a commitment to run 12 races in 2014.  Averaging one race a month with the final race being the Cayman Islands 1/2 marathon.  I am not what I would consider a runner so this is a huge undertaking for me.  I’m not going to lie, there might be some walking, but I will finish every race and hope you will cheer me on along the way.

The running isn’t even the scariest part…the scariest part is my fundraising goal.  I wanted to be bold and not let fear in the way.  I wanted to make an impact–even though I know every PENNY counts.  As such, I have made a fundraising goal of $12,000 for the year.  This is where I need your help.  Spread the word.  Ask your company.  Donate as a gift to someone.  Donate for no reason at all.   What do you get in return?  Endless gratitude and post run sweaty hugs for one.  A tax write off for you Americans out there, for two.  Most importantly you will help save a child’s life. 

Here is the link to my fundraising page…http://www.alexslemonade.org/mypage/1000199  Please, please, please pass this along to anyone and everyone.

I’ll keep you updated on when I’m running and how the fundraising is going.  Please feel free to email me with any questions or if you would like any more information!  Wish me luck!!!
