Thanks to the wonderful students and alumni of The Schey Sales Centre at Ohio University, Miracles for Life® will be hosting its 6th Annual Miracles for Life Run for a Reason in Athens, OH Saturday, April 28th, 2012.
The revenue from this event will be going into the Miracles for Life® “A Kid Again Fund”.
We set up this fund several years ago so we can provide “camperships” for area children battling life-threatening illnesses or recovering from life-saving organ and tissue transplants so they can attend a week at one of the Paul Newman Foundation “Hole in the Wall Camps”* like the Petty Racing Family Foundation “Victory Junction” Camp outside of Greensboro, NC where they can be “a kid again”.
Campers do not pay to attend the camps; so, events like this help foundations like Miracles for Life pay the $2,500 “camperships” it cost to send a camper to the camps.
I know that we are approached daily by numerous worthwhile causes and there are never enough funds available to help all the deserving ones. However, the miracle of organ and blood donation touched my family's soul, and I hope it touches yours.
I hope you can help us!
May God bless,
Thomas J. Starr, Founder & CEO
