Susan's Team Sjogrens Run

Hello all. I've got about a week to meet my fundraising goal of $2,600. Please give what you can; your contributions make it possible for me to run with Team Sjogrens at the Nashville Marathon and Half-Marathon on April 30, 2011.

For each mile I run on April 30, the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation (SSF) will get approximately $200 from our collective efforts, so they can continue their collective efforts:

In addition to finding a cure for Sjogren's, the SSF funds research programs for new treatments, patient education, and public awareness campaigns (about Sjogren's as well as other related autoimmune, connective-tissue, inflammatory and rheumatological disorders and diseases).

I've been training for the half-marathon for the passed three months, and have worked my way up to regular 4 and 5-mile runs--despite some nasty "flare ups," which get me down but also remind me why I'm running.

I’m running because I’m tired of Sjogren’s, tired of feeling tired and achy and overly cautious; tired of having a painfully dry mouth and eyes that feel sand-scratched; and tired of the looming worry about some Sjogren’s-secondary disease, such as lymphoma, arthritis, or lupus.

Family, friends, colleagues and associates--not only is charitable giving tax deductible, but you can count on me to return the favor, when you have your own fundraising to do. Please know that you're on to a good cause, and know that donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure.

If you have some time to browse, consider visiting the profiles of other SSF fundraisers. For more information on Sjogren's Syndrome, visit the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation website.

Thanks all, 

Susan Hines,
Future Half-Marathoner
