Phil Skoug's Danny Did Foundation 2016 Chicago Marathon
I'm raising money for this event:
Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
Hello friends and family.
I am pleased to announce that I again will be participating in the 2016 Chicago Marathon for Team Danny Did. This is the third year I have run for this charity.All funds raised on this page will be donated to the Danny Did Foundation. Danny was a loveable boy who unfortunately died in his sleep after having a seizure. As you can see I am hoping to raise $1000 for this worthy cause. All the money goes toward research and supplies for people suffering from Epilepsy. Thanks to all of those that donated last year. Looking forward to October 9th, 2016 and draw some inspiration from Danny to propel me to the finish. Remember to live life like 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.
