1000 Miles for Mama
I am raising awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation by running 1,000 miles in 2020 in honor and memory of my absolutely amazing mother. I will donate $1 for each mile that I complete and I'd love to be able to count on you to make a donation too, and/or run a few miles with me to keep me going! I will be posting my progress along the way.
For those who were lucky enough to know my mom, you knew she was the most amazing woman and a true example of love, grace and light. She was a a hard worker and always a doer; this challenge allows me imitate her and do something that I can wrap my head around so that other people may not have to go through this tragic time as my family has.
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is the world's premier nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures.
All proceeds go towards:
- Funding and supporting new research.
- Providing support and educational materials to the medical community, the newly diagnosed, survivors, family members, friends and the general public regarding the facts, treatment options, and recovery process for brain aneurysms.
- Increasing awareness of brain aneurysms by promoting National Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month in September and by distributing aneurysm awareness materials to Emergency Departments in every hospital and to the community.
With your support, we can start making a real investment to help fight the devastation caused by brain aneurysms and save lives. All donations are tax-deductible and every dollar raised goes to help support the mission of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
The loss of a loved one is beyond devastating. Yet, we are always reminded by our hearts – how lucky we have been to know those that we loved even in our loss.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness. As always, "Bloom Where You Are Planted!"
