Hey everybody!! This is not going to be my average post. I wanted to share with you all something very exciting that I signed up for today - and no, it is not a 5k, but close. I signed up for a Wigs for Kids walk, 5k run and more!
I am really pumped to participate in a walk for such a good cause. I am really passionate about children - why I decided to earn a teaching degree - and when my mom forwarded me the information about this event, I just had to sign us up.
I know that when a child loses their hair, many of them realize they are different than their friends and peers and can become self-concious about their appearance and lose self-esteem - no child should ever have to feel that way. I really value the mission of Wigs for Kids: Helping Children Look Themselves and Live Their Lives Wigs for Kids is a nonprofit organization that serves children suffering from hair loss.
I am very happy and blessed to have the opportunity to help such a great cause along with my sister and mom. I am really excited and wish I didn't have to wait a week and a half for this!
I have also set up a donation page - anyone can go to the page and donate directly with their credit card or if someone makes a cash or check donation I can go onto the site and log in the amount and who donated. My goal is $500 - I am already at $200 and I had an awesome surprise donation in my inbox today! Whenever someone donates I get a really nice email letting me know :) probably the best email I ever received!
This race will be on my mind for the next week and half, but I know it will be over before I know it. I will definitely keep you all up-to-date on my donations page - hopefully I will reach AND exceed my goal by the 27th!!
