It's Official!

We officially have our fundraising website! Here it is! I am so excited :). So much so that I emailed the Heroes website yesterday asking them when my info would come through so I could start fundraising. No one ever said paitience was one of my strong points ;).

If you want to know more about who/why I am raising this money, the link will tell you all about it.

The basics are:
  •  I love(d) these two little boys

  • Kaleb is my cousin that passed away in January. He had a heart condition that we all thought was taken care of and he was making such leway in his physical therapy! But his poor little heart just couldn't take it and he had an aneurysm and passed away at 17 months old.
  • Nick is a little boy I talk about a lot. I met him right after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and spent a year getting to know him and his family, before he passed away at eight years old. He spent time at St. Jude for the beginning of his treatment, and it's because of him that I am going back to school to become a child life specialist. My calling came through him :)
  • This girl needs some motivation to work out. What better motivation than these two precious faces! I will be in the gym and on the track kicking my own butt for the next 18 weeks because of them :).
Basically, that's it. I will be spending my birthday in Memphis with my baby sister and I can't imagine a better way to celebrate. I probably won't be eating my birthday cake until after the race though ;).

If any of you are training for a 1/2 and have some tips, let me know! I'd love all the advice I can get.

Have a great Thursday y'all.
