Run with Mae
Run with Mae is a 5K/10K created to raise money for three very important organizations close to our hearts. When our daughter Brooklynn Mae was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia last November (2020) at 8 months old - the I Will Right Now Foundation contacted us almost immediately and helped cover payments we weren't even thinking about after our world was turned upside down. They jumped right in to assist us, and we could not be more thankful. With that being said, we would like to donate 45% of the proceeds to I Will Right Now so they can do the same for another family. We have become more aware of the funding and research being done for childhood cancers, and want to be able to help fund research if we can. With that being said, we would like to donate 45% of the proceeds to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. If you don't know the story behind Alex's Lemonade Stand - definitely look it up. It's pretty incredible. The other 10% of the proceeds will go to the University of Michigan Mott Children's Hospital Pediatric Oncology floor for the holiday season. We love the 7East crew, and unfortunately know all too well what it's like to be in the hospital during the holidays. They made it as special as they could and it was all possible because of donations given.
