Running 31 Miles for the Kids of CLC!

My husband, Steve and I are
running 31 miles for the kids
of the Conductive Learning Center!

Steve and I have run extended races and triathlons to raise money to help charities. This year we are honored to be helping the kids of the Conductive Learning Center. We want to execute a challenge that is worthy of your charity dollars.

On May 12, 2012:
We will run full Fifth Third River Bank Run 25K X 2
for a total of 50K, non stop.
50K= 31.1 Miles!
Think of a place you know that is 30 miles away. Grand Rapids to Holland is just under 30 miles. Now think of running there. We have been juggling work, three VERY SUPPORTIVE kids, and busy schedules. We are training very hard every day to be able to accomplish this goal. Team Drake is fully committed to reaching it and would be grateful if you would join us by donating to the CLC on our behalf.
The Conductive Learning Center (CLC) works with children, from birth to age 26, who are affected by motor disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury and other genetic disorders.These children are often severely limited in their ability to perform basic, everyday activities such as sitting, standing, walking, eating, toileting and getting dressed. CLC employs a dynamic, integrated learning system, called Conductive Education, to help the children gain control over their movements & acquire the skills necessary to accomplish the tasks of daily living. CLC children, work hard day in and day out, committed to reaching their goal of increased independence.
Team Drake’s financial goal is to raise $10,000. 100% of your pledge dollars will benefit the children of the Conductive Learning Center. As of today we are almost half way there, $4,400! The full amount of your donation is tax deductible and every donation helps, small or large.
Thank you for the supporting the Conductive Learning Center

The students of CLC work hard- every single day!
They train just like an athlete,
setting goals, strengthening and
conditioning their bodies to be the best they can be!!!
Watching how hard the CLC kids work to just stand up
inspired us to help them the best way we know how…
lace up and RUN!

    Thanks for what you do Margaux! What a wonderful cause! As the mother of a 6 year old with Down Syndrome, I can relate to the challenges these children face every day. It means so much when I see others who reach out to support the disabled community.
