Well, if you already know me, you didn't need me to sign up to run a half-marathon to answer that :-)
In all seriousness, what the heck am I doing running a half-marathon?
I'm not, actually. At least not the way I see it.
What I'm doing is going beyond *my* comfort zone (WELL beyond, actually) to give some comfort and support to my nephew Binny and his awesome family.
Binny was diagnosed with a brain tumor five years ago, at eight years old, had brain surgery, and since then he and his family have dealt with the continuing challenges that ordeal has brought into their lives.
Throughout that process, Chai Lifeline has been there.
It's unreal how much good one organization can do. With dedicated staff and incredible volunteers, Chai Lifeline has been a beacon of hope and help in their lives.
So, yeah, I'm running a half-marathon because if that can help the cause in some small way, then I've gotta do it.
If YOU could please help the cause in some small way, or in some large way, please do.
For Binny. And for all the other kids who are fortunate enough to have Chai Lifeline in their family's lives.
Thanks so much and I look forward to greeting you from the finish line!
