Hello friends and fam!!
I was only 13.1 miles of running crazy, now I am going to be 3x the crazy while I am training for a TRIATHLON! I'm absolutely stoked to push my body in ways I never thought it could be pushed. Jesus is really putting on my heart to give back to organizations that have helped both my family and I get through some of most exhausting times. After being blown away by the amount of support, both prayerfully and financially while I raised money for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, I am overjoyed to raise support for Make A Wish!
After my brother, Travis, battled Hodgkin's Lymphoma, he was granted a wish from this INCREDIBLE organization. Seeing the true healing process of a wish kid come to life, was something that I will always hold close to my heart. AND after being given the most amazing experience to intern with this organization this past summer in Chicago, I got to see the entire process of wishes come to life, first hand.
I could talk for HOURS about how much this organization has impacted me. I am literally beaming while I write this blurb. Kids and families who experience life-threatening and critical illness understand that life is impacted tremendously in so many aspects. Research has been conducted to prove that when a child is granted a wish, endorphins are released in the body, leading up to the wish, during the wish, and proceeding the wish, to grant a unique part of the healing process.
What a joy it is that this organization exists! I am excited to use my able body that the Lord has given to me while I train for this triathlon, to help raise money for children whose bodies need healing. Life-giving healing.
Please be praying for children across the WORLD who struggle each day with an illness that is so scary, and if you feel inclined to donate, every dollar counts to grant wishes and life-giving healing to these kiddos.
So much love for y'all.
