Donate Life 5K


It is that time again.  Well not yet.  But on October 15th we will be walking in this years Vital Alliance Donate Life 5K. I'm so excited.  Maybe even more so than last year.  It was our first time ever doing anything like that so we were so clueless.  This year will be much better.  Last year I thought it was all about how fast you could get though the walk, only to find out it was so much more fun to chit chat along the way.  And Alex was loving all the dogs that were right at stroller level!

There were so many people out there.  Some were in huge groups.  Some were walking alone.  There were hats, shirts and whole cheering sections for people.  Some in memory of donors, some for loved ones who died waiting for an organ.  Some had had transplants themselves and others like me were still on the waiting list.  So many people there to support one cause.  Donate Life.  I cant wait to be a part of it again this year.  Its nice to know I am not alone in this!

This year will be very different.  A few of my twitter friends will be joining me.  Of course Melisa will be right there with me.  And hopefully the boys too.  I will have to register Anthony if he wants to go.  No biggie. I'm so excited to get out and show my support for something that is literally going to save my life.  And give me the chance to do many more years of this!

So here it is.  My fundraising page.  I set a goal this year to make more than I did last year.  Everyone that donated last year was so generous and I'm hoping that this year I will be able to raise as much if not more.  So what do you think?  Will I cross one more goal of this years bucket list?  Please feel free to share this page with  everyone and anyone.  And thank you all for the amazing support.  I couldn't have come this far without you all!  Much love!

And if you will be in town, there is no where else you should be!  So stop by Vital Alliance and register for the 14th Annual Vital Alliance Donate Life 5K Run/Walk.
