The following is an excerpt from a message that a buddy of mine sent…
I am coordinating a fund raising walk for my daughter.
Indiana Mito What? Walk and Family Fun Day on October 4th, 2008 Forest Park, Noblesville, IN
As you many of you know my 7 year old daughter Abigail suffers from a disease called Mitochondrial Disease. There is no cure. This is the first inaugural walk that I am coordinating to raise awareness and funds for a cure. I am asking for your support. You can register and join my team, sponsor my team or just make a donation. I would love to see you and your family be able to make it out to Forest Park on this day. There will be some things for the kids to do there and a couple of Indie bands playing.
What do you have to do as a team? Get other team members to join and collect donations/pledges. This walk is not for just Abigail, but it’s for all of those affected by this disease. Pledges can be collect via www.umdf.org/indianawalk or the ol’ pledge form. All of the monies will go to United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation towards research for a cure.
I don’t really ask for money unless it’s for a good cause. Please register or sponsor (www.umdf.org/sponsorgoerges) today! I hope to see you all at Forest Park on October 4th.
John and his family are great people. Obviously if you’re not in the greater Indianapolis area you can’t join in the park, but if you can find out more and sponsor the event — if you’re touched by the story, the disease, or the passion for trying to make good out of bad.
