Thank you for visiting my donation site supporting me in my 2013 Race Across America - RAAM and raising funds to help make the event a reality, as well as to support the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation and Make Child Poverty History charities.
I selected the CNCF as my charity to support because of two individuals that have had a major influence on my life. The first is a little girl named Christi Thomas. She unfortunately passed away from Neuroblastoma after a four-year battle, but changed the lives of many during her journey.
The other is a young man named Mark Sherman, who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma when he was an infant, but was able to beat the disease and is now living cancer-free. Mark and I enjoy riding together and it's been a real pleasure to see him grow up. I'm pleased that he will be joining me as one of my crew members for this year's event (and he was with me for my 2011 race as well).
The local WSI (We Simplify the Internet) office as well as WSI Corporate have both been an instrumental part in making this year's RAAM event a reality. Thanks to their financial support and encouragement, it's allowed me to focus on my training and riding the 3,000 miles across the United States in June. MCPH is an organization near to the hearts of many WSI consultants around the world and focused on making sure that children do not go hungry.
After you make your contribution, please don't hesitate to tell friends and family members about my event and encourage them to support as well. Together, we can help make a difference in childrens' lives with cancer.
Be sure to visit www.GoKathyGo.com as well as my Facebook page for updates and results from events leading up to my big race, starting June 11, 2013, and throughout the race.
*Contributions collected will help to offset remaining RAAM team expenses for Kathy and her crew. Once expenses are covered, all funds received will be split 50/50 between the CNCF and MCPH charities.
