Be the Good You Want to See in the World
So the participants are taking donations and we are plotting food, drink, and comfort for the 24 hour period. I have also set up a Ustream page so that we can live stream the event and folks can make sure that we are keeping it real. The closer it get the more excited and frightened I become! 20 years ago I could have done this easy peasy. Now I can only think about what staying up for 24 hours straight is going to do to my body and the fact that I have to stay away from my daughter for 24 hours.
My beautiful Princess Peanut was born with a duplicate thumb on her right hand. When she was 8 months old she had it removed at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indy. The good Dr. Havlik did her surgery and she still sees him regularly to have her progress evaluated. We have received good care from some of the nicest folks at Riley and I can only imagine how much more comforting that would be if Pea’s condition had been life threatening.
This year I am happy to be able to participate in the Extra Life Charity Marathon to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network and Riley.You can find my Extra Life Donation page HERE.
