Last night, late in the evening I arrived back home and fell into bed with my head spinning. Visions of blog posts dancing in my head, I finally drifted into a fitful sleep. My mind was kind of wrecked by BlogHer. There is something both sustaining and draining about a conference of bloggers. But then I woke up to this….
These are my visions; they are my reason for kind of all of being.
And they are part of the reason I am caught up in this crazy world of blogging.
My voice is small but it is a voice that can advocate, that can tell people how much has been done in the world and how much there is still to be done. That is why I’m thrilled to share that I’m serving as a lead blogger for this fall’s Miracle Marathon.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raise funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. When a donation is given it stays in the community, helping local kids. So great, right?
The Miracle Marathon is a 27-day virtual fundraising campaign in which participants run/walk (or achieve forward motion of any kind!) one mile per day at their leisure. The first 26 days are completed at your own pace—wherever and whenever you want. On Day 27, the final 1.2 miles will be started as a group at 2:27 pm EST. Get it? It’s a marathon, plus a mile, for the kids. And it’s perfect for those of us who like the idea of completing a marathon but would rather not complete all the miles at once.
Please join me and register to support MU Children’s Hospital or another Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, and tell your friends too! And if you register as a Miracle Maker (you’ll receive fun swag!), you can use my special code MiracleKate to get a 10% discount off registration.
Over the next few months I will be sharing lots of updates on social media but feel free to follow along on my fundraising page as well!
