Welcome to Vanessa's Page
You didn't really think a stress fracture would keep me from running a marathon, right??? I've decided that after my leg heals, I'll restart my marathon training and on October 8th of next year, I will be representing Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! As a member of Team RMHC, I will be training, fundraising and ultimately running 26.2 miles to help keep families close.
Since 1974, RMHC has been making children happier and healthier by keeping families together – giving them a place to rest and refresh. A place that feels like home. While my daughter Aubrey had open heart surgery at Children's Mercy Hospital, her father and I stayed in the Ronald McDonald Family Room so we could be close to her. Obviously this charity is very special to our family!
You too can join RMHC's network of HOPE, STRENGTH and SUPPORT, by supporting my efforts to raise $1000 - $25 can provide dinner for a family, $80 can give a family a room for a night. Your donation, of any amount, will not only help me achieve my goal, but will help children stay close to their families when they need it most!
