Wow! The love that we have received for these ladies is beyond words! I know they personally feel all the love, support and excitement around this race. Since announcing this race we have had over 1000 people all over the world reading about it and have about 200 people signed up between Canada and the US. This is just incredible! Our goal is to get 2000 people signed up from all over the world! Check out where everyone is running
Today, Kym went in for her 4th surgery from the accident. She finally was able to part ways with Maurice (her ostomy bag). This is just another step in her journey to a full recovery. She had a going away party this past weekend for her and Maurice. Here are a couple pics and her vibrant smile.
Both Ellie and Kym are still out of work and recovering from the accident. By participating in this race you are helping take away their financial stress, showing support and love all the while they are able to focus on their recovery.
If every person that has looked at this race, the past month, actually signed up we would have about 1200 people from all over the world which means the girls would have $30,000! That is nuts to think about!
What is stopping you from signing up?
- Cost? Pay when you can just sign up to hold your medal. I won’t send medals til I know money has been sent.
- Don’t know the girls? We will be showcasing each of the women over the next few weeks to let you see how amazing they are
- Don’t have PayPal? Ok well contact me and we can figure something out!
- Why should you? If you have or know anyone that has been in a serious car accident you know the stress, hassle and time it takes to settle everything (average length is 3 years). Each major surgery cost around $200k depending what is being done. It all adds up fast and not even including the emotional, physical and mental challenges that don’t have a price. In a blink of an eye these women’s lives changed forever.
Let me tell you through everything that these girls have been through, their strength, love and positivity amaze me. Yes, they have their bad days but overall they stay positive and move forward. They definitely took the term “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” to a whole new level.
