Less than a week away…

The second annual Energy for Life Walkathon is this Saturday!  We want to thank all of you who have registered to walk, donated, or participated in a “For the Love of Lucy” fundraiser!  Your support, care, compassion, thoughts, prayers, love, friendships, loyalty, and dedication to helping a cause that is so near and dear to our hearts is quite simply…amazing!  We appreciate each and every one of you and want to thank you for all that you do, we could never do this alone!

That being said, if you have not yet registered or donated to our team “For the Love of Lucy” it’s not too late!  Click on the link in this post or over on our left side bar, and click on the yellow  join our team button or donate button and follow the directions on the website.   Help us to reach our goal of raising $10, 000 for mitochondrial research.  We are well on our way to doing this, but are not there yet.

The Energy for Life Walkathon is a pledge based walk, there is no fee to walk, you collect pledges or donations for walking.   It is the hope of the UMDF that by organizing the walk this way we will raise more money for mitochondrial disease as well as awareness as we explain to others why we are walking. 

If you ordered a For the Love of Lucy t-shirt, orders are in and can be picked up at our house or arranged to be delivered if I just happen to be in your neck of the woods within the next few day.  If you are one of our beloved supporters across the country who ordered a shirt, I will be contacting you via e-mail in the next few days to exchange addresses so that we can exchange goods.

Thanks as always for your love and support, thoughts and prayers…they mean so much!!
