Guess what I did last night? I registered my son and I for our half marathon that we will run February 1st. I also sent out an email to friends and family stating our cause. Our cause is to help fight ALS. My son who is 9 will run along with me. I am not going to try and win the race. I am going to win for my Dad who lost his battle. He may have lost to the disease..but I sure didn't. I am fighting..for him and all the others who are currently fighting. The money we get from our little own fundraiser will go towards a program that is used to help families. It give them educational support, support groups, hospice care and so many other wonderful information. I am so excited about this. My Mom read my email I sent with help of my son and she cried. This is our own fundraising. I came up with the idea and my son wanted to be apart of it. So, why not? I am thrilled at this opportunity! The race starts at 8 a.m. at Golden Gate Park in San Fran. Wish us luck..I will be thinking of you all as I run this race..and know your fighting a different kind of fight. :)
