We're Back!

It's been far too long since we have taken the time to update our blog.  Tonight we have some exciting news to share, so we are dusting this thing off to make a (very daunting) announcement.

We just did this...
While it may seem that our fundraising goal of $10 000 is the daunting part, it is not.  We have decided that to raise $10 000 we better do something pretty big.  Bang for your buck if you will.

So on September 12, 2015 Leigh and I will be running the whole 100km distance  side by side!!

We have had this in the works since last year's Run.  We have taken it into consideration as we set our 2015 running goals.  Since December 29th we have been running all the miles, eating all the food, and sleeping all the time.  In fact, everyone in our family was in bed in the 6 o'clock hour last night...I am not exaggerating.  We are training for The Sulphur Springs 50K.  It is our stepping stone towards 100K training which will start after the race on May 23rd.

Now we need you!

First, we are looking for teammates.  You need not be crazy enough to run 100km.  If there is enough interest, we would like to form a Cooper's Troopers relay team to run the course as our relay teams did last year.  Distances are variable, and you do not need to have running experience.  You do need to have the desire to run, a passion for helping sick kids, the willingness to train, and a HUGE commitment to fundraising.  Please contact us ASAP if you would like to join us for this amazing event.

Second...Here is our fundraising link .  We would be so very grateful if you would be willing to donate to this very deserving cause.
