#100happydays Day 49 Race Bag Pickup for the Rebecca Run
I had the great opportunity to volunteer at the race bag pick up for the Rebecca Run today.
The Rebecca Run is very close to both Glenis and I. We have been involved with the event since Louise Smith had an idea of a race to raise funds to help find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy 13 years ago. I remember planning with her as we trained for the Chicago Marathon. We wanted it to be the best little race around – and it is!
Louise has firsthand experience with SMA, her niece was diagnosed with this disease. This diagnosed sent Louise on a mission to find a cure. Since the race started it had raised over 2.2 million dollars for Families of SMA. She has been a source of inspiration to us and to all the families dealing with SMA.
The Rebecca Run is on July 5, 2014 at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, Ontario. There is still time to register and there is always time to donate.
We hope we see you at the finish line.
