Mike's cousin Brent recently contacted me about running in the Rebecca Run www.rebeccarun.com Unfourtunately Brent and his wife Rhonda won't be able to run because the event is SOLD OUT! The Rebecca Run is a fundraiser for Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy Canada. 95% of their profits go toward research. While Brent seemed rather disappointed I am thrilled. This is the first year that the run has sold out. I didn't even know such a thing was possible. I have always just assumed that those types of events will take as many people as they can get. While SMA continues to be a term that many people have never heard of perhaps word is finally spreading. If anyone wants to meet some inspiring kids go to the website and then click on honorees. It will remind you why we need a cure sooner than later.
I am currently working on a fundraiser for the first weekend in October (in honour of Georgie's birthday). If anyone has any great venue ideas that would hold a couple hundred people, have tall enough ceilings for a bouncer and is reasonably priced please contact me. I am currently emailing community centres but many people seem to be on holidays at the moment.
Thank you so much Brent and Rhonda. We are blessed to be surrounded by people like you.
3 more sleep to Vegas! Can you tell I'm excited?!
Love to you all,
