The big day is here! To day is the day that I can invite you to go and meet my new running team. I have been hinting at it for a while now, and the day is finally here. Although we originally figured it would be in January, things/events/circumstances worked out better than we first thought.
This is the front of the Team Jersey
I belong to Team DAWS. It stands for Do Away with SMA. SMA is a genetic disease that stands for Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It It afflicts 1 in 4 people, mostly children, who don’t survive this genetic disorder. Our Team Captain’s brothers died in infancy due to SMA. So the team decided we would help eradicate this disease through fundraising and an awareness campaign.
August 17, 2015, our team is going to
attempt run 42.2km per day for 20 days. Crazy right? You betcha! We are training, learning and promoting our adventure and we would like you to follow along while we figure this out. I can promise you injuries, fatigue, a crazy training schedule and lots of laughing along the way. I can also promise you inspiring moments and embarrassing ones.
We are having many contests, virtual runs with medals and podcasts so you can participate and be a part of the team! Come over to our blog and check us out, enter the contest for a Team DAWS Prize Pack – we have some great things in that box that you will want to win. But most of all, we want to hear what YOU think! We want to hear your cheers and leers and we want to know what you think about the insane running schedule.
Stop by and say hi and tell us what you think! Don’t forget to enter the contest! It will be running until November 14, 2013. Do Away With SMA
