I don't normally do this type of thing... but this is important so I'm going to put it out there. I am a member of Team Hope, a 20 person team who will be lifting at an event called Relentless on March 23, 2013 here in Minnesota. The event is put together to raise money for an organization called Hope Kids. As a member of Team Hope, I had to commit to raise at least $500 for the family of a child with a life threatening illness.
The money I raise will go directly to the family. On Jan 20th I will get to meet my family (the 19 other lifters will meet thier families). I am so honored to do this. You may or may not know this, but my now 16 year old daughter fought cancer when she was 3 years old. We needed and were lucky enough to get financial support from friends, family, and strangers. Since that time in my life I have always tried to help others in the same position.
Please help me reach my goal -- I was asked to raise $500, I want to raise $3000. You can click on this and go to my page -- every single dollar counts. Please consider helping. When I meet my family in January, I will update this post and tell you all about them.
Thanks MAB family.
