Announcing The Western States 100 Fundraising Project!

In honor of last Saturday’s 1st World Encephalitis Day (I am counted as a survivor), I am proud to announce the 2014 Western States Endurance Run Fundraising Project. Having been fortunate enough to be selected in the lottery to run in “the worlds oldest and most prestigious” 100 mile endurance race on June 28th, I will be using this as an opportunity to support a couple of organizations very close to my heart.

100% of all donations will go to charitable purposes and will be divided between the Karen Elizabeth Huselid Foundation Scholarship Fund or to either Encephalitis Global in the U.S. or the Encephalitis Society in the U.K. Both organizations seek to provide support for encephalitis victims and to spread awareness of these terrible diseases. The KEH scholarships award funds to exceptional Arizona high school students who show great determination in overcoming challenges.

So, yes this means I will be bothering you all intermittently for the next 4 months with training and fundraising updates, so start saving up to donate!
