I'm raising money for this event:
Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
And it comes full circle! The run that made me a runner. 3 years ago June was my first run; a 5K. Three years later; 5Ks, 8Ks, 10Ks, and half marathon later my goal for 2016 is BIG! I intend to run my first marathon October 9th. While nervous, I know I can do what I set my mind to. I couldn't imagine setting this goal with anyone other than the organization that changed my life. Thank God for Danny Did Foundation! Danny Did's family is dedicated in its mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Stanton family lost their son at age four to seizure.
Consider supporting me in this run and as Danny's obituary stated; ‘Go enjoy your life. Danny did.’
About my cause:
Founded by Chicagoans Mike and Mariann Stanton in January 2010 after the sudden death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation’s primary mission is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Foundation is dedicated to advancing public awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), enhancing the SUDEP communication model between medical professionals and families impacted by seizures, and gaining mainstream acceptance and use of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths. Epilepsy affects nearly 3 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. The name of the Danny Did Foundation originates from the last line of Danny Stanton’s obituary, written by his dad: “Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.”
Our 2015 Team raised over $60k last year and those funds were used to help place seizure detection devices in homes across the country. These devices alarm a caregiver during a seizure which can reduce the safety risks often associated with seizures. Parents appreciate this peace of mind and are thankful for the chance to address a seizure and keep their loved ones safe. We plan to beat that team fundraising number in 2016, and we hope you will be part of reaching this goal. Thank you for your support! To learn more, please visit www.dannydid.org.

May your run be fun and blisterless :)
