It's all about.... Hope

I wasn't able to attend the Ballou Skies Team Photo shoot, but it doesn't mean I wasn't there in spirit. This year is a very special year. We've added three great new members to the team (welcome Lisa, Bill & Ben!). We have a renewed strength together and a big goal, no a HUGE goal of raising $100,000 for research for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is pretty lofty, yep, we know.. A majority of us would have never gotten this far if it wasn't for lofty goals and we're not about to stop now :)

To that end, today for Leap Day, we are holding the Ballou Skies Leap Day Donation Drive and Newton Shoe Raffle! A monetary donation of any size received today, will enter your name into a drawing to win one of three pair of Newton running shoes being raffled off! Please share the news, give what you can, and have HOPE!

So don't miss out! This is a great chance to help boys just like Ryan Ballou who has touched my life is such a positive way. Thank you Ryan. I wouldn't be half the athlete I am without being able to ask myself when all is on the line...who am I really in this for? Is it all about me, or is it about doing something that may just allow someone to live another day healthy and happy. Since meeting you..the choice is easy.

Donate today if you have $5.00 to spare or $50.00 every step is a step closer to the goal.

Thank you for your support! With Hope, anything is possible!

Oh crap, saw this on FB and meant to get back to it but didn't know it had a deadline. I'll get my act together and get you and Beth set up with some moolah at some point.
