Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts.

I'm doing this for 3 reasons:
1) I've never run a 5K or otherwise participated in a arguably competitive athletic endevour. I'm doing the Couch to 5K training program to run this 5K.
2) I am a mom in a 2-mom family, and am passionate about creating a world where families like mine are safe and free to thrive. I believe that my being visible in a wide range of contexts, as a lesbian mom, contributes to making that world into reality.
3) Children's Hospital of Milwaukee saved my life. When I was a toddler, roughly 1.5 years old, I developed a very serious throat infection. I had an emergency tracheostomy at Children's Hospital. I still have the scar at the base of my throat.
