"Running ALL Together" is a relay team running the Vermont City Marathon on May 30, 2010. ALL is short for "acute lymphocytic leukemia" which is why we are running.  It has had an impact on the lives of all our team members.  We are running to remind ourselves of the long journey that cancer treatment is for each child and family.

During that journey there are "mile markers" and "aid stations".  There are times that you don't think you can't make it to the next checkpoint and times when you feel you have the wind at your back.  For some of us the "finish line" is something that has recently be crossed and for others it is coming into view.  (Evan finishes up in Aug/Sept.)  The Marathon really does lend itself to being a great metaphor for this life-changing time in our lives. 

In addition, we are also raising money for the Vermont Children's Hospital and programs they provide that give aid and comfort to families with a child being treated for ALL or other life-threatening illnesses.  I have set up this online fundraiser site to hopefully make it easy for you to give a small amount to this cause.  This secure website will allow you to donate with your credit card.  It will then consolidate all your donations and send one check to me which I will then pass on to our team captain to give to the Hospital.  With money in short supply everywhere these days I appreciate whatever you can donate.  It is a cliche, but "no donation is too small".

Thanks so much!

Johnny
