I’ve accepted the challenge to raise money for Give Kids The World Village. I’ve joined them in their mission by taking on the Challenge for Hope. I’ll be raising money and racing with my fellow Challengers as we all walk, run, roll or stroll through the Village. But I can’t do it without your help. This year its personal. I have a Niece whose son Griffin has MPS type 3A and is slowly dying. Griffin lives up north and his mother struggles with Insurance companies for basic needs such as wheel chairs, ramps and therapies. Its hard to watch your child slowly fade away, I don't even want to imagine. GKTW can help families like Griffin's forget all that struggle for 1 week and just enjoy what time they have together. Join Me in this event, it will be good for you and for many families too.
One of the neat things about this race is you don't have to be here to be part of my team. You can participate virtually. Click on the "Virtual Challenge" at the top of The Challenge for Hope page and then join our team, its that easy. There is less than 2 months to go.
Every day, this nonprofit “storybook” resort provides cost-free vacations to children and families battling critical illnesses, and I believe those vacations create happiness and hope when these families need it most. When a child is diagnosed with a critical illness, their family’s life become full of unexpected and unpredictable challenges, from doctor appointments to hospital stays and medical treatments. But for one week, children and families have the chance to laugh, play and simply spend time together – both at the Village and at Central Florida’s world-class theme parks and attractions. Give Kids The World Village becomes a home-away-from-home during their once-in-a-lifetime trip and it doesn’t cost the families a cent.
Thank you for supporting me, join my Team named in honor of Griffin; The "Griffin's Dorfs".
