Running for a Cause

This weekend coming up October 16th, 2010 I will be participating in my first 5k! Which I am so excited about. I have been wanting to do one of these forever, but lacked focus and commitment! But I am really going to do it!

My brother, sister in-law, KeVaughn and myself will be walking for Elijah! The 5k is to support and bring awareness for the Fetal Hope Foundation. This is obviously something that hits home for me, Because of Eli. ¬†Anything I can do that can potentially help him and babies and families like him is ¬†important to me. This may seem selfish but I’m in love with my nephew and want him to get the best care and find answers to his issues and doing so will help other families that are experiencing some of the same issues.

I’m also, doing this to support Emily and my brother for although we are a very close family they deal with this on another level. For them to be around other children and parents that share experiences is important for them. To talk about the illness with people who know their language, has to bring a sense of comfort and bond that I won’t get.

I am also doing this to educate myself more. The more I know about what my nephew is dealing with and will need to deal with in the future the more I can support all of them. So… If anyone is interested in learning more please follow the link.
