Fighting for a cause

Nate and I are stepping out of our comfort zone (especially me!!) to help support other families who have experienced a loss like ours.  We have both registered for the 3rd annual 5K Run/Walk to Remember in Coon Rapids on June 10th.  If you know me at all, you know running is not my thing... AT ALL!  But the cause is good and I can do this for Declan!! I need to do this.  I think the pain might feel good in a strange sort of way... a reminder that I'm still in the land of the living.  I'm deciding to let this tragedy strengthen me instead of destroy me!

All proceeds will go to Faith's Lodge (resort for bereaved parents), the Minnesota Sudden Infant Death Center (SIDS and SUID) and Children's Hospitals and Clinics of MN.  If your interesting in supporting the cause, please feel free to attend the event and run/walk along side of my family or feel free to be a "Spirit Walker" and just come and support us.  You can also make a donation to help the cause.

  1. Holle,
    There is a pod cast you can download to an mp3 player called couch to 5k. It trains you to run a 5k in 10 weeks. It walks you through how you should train and it is set to music. I thought it might be helpful as you plan you event. Let me know if you need help with it.
