Special Kids

Sunday, February 15, 2009
I have set up a new Etsy store!

All of the items listed there will benefit Special Kids of TN ( 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Special Kids and help me towards my goal of raising $500 by June. Honestly I'm hoping that I will exceed my goal!

On June 6th I will be competing in the Mach Tenn Triathlon (.6mi swim, 16mi bike, and a 4mi run) on behalf of a child at Special Kids. Last year I was able to compete in the Mach Tenn as well as the Murfreesboro Middle Half (half marathon) and was able to raise over $900 for Special Kids.

Special Kids is a wonderful organization that provides physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapy, as well as skilled nursing for children with special needs throughout middle Tennessee.

I have 2 toddlers of my own, and I thank my Heavenly Father every day that they do not require the services at Special Kids, unfortunately there are other children that do. If it were my children, I would hope that there would be someone out there helping my children.

People ask me why I would do such a thing as running 13 miles or doing a triathlon. My answer is simple: I run for those who can't.
