I'm raising money for this event:
Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
The Stanton family has been in my prayers and thoughts since I heard about their foundation in 2010. Mike and Mariann heroically created The Danny Did Foundation after the sudden and heartbreaking death of their four-year-old son, Danny.
The Danny Did Foundation is amazing because it works to prevent deaths caused by SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) in children.
I am so excited to be running the Chicago Marathon on October 9th, 2016 and what makes this challenge meaningful is that I am running it for Danny Stanton. Through this endeavor, I hope to bring awareness to others about SUDEP.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal and raise awareness of epilepsy by making a donation to this great organization. To find out more about Danny Did, please visit: www.dannydid.org/about-us/meet-danny/. and meet Danny. I am positive the Stantons will touch your heart like they touched mine.
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.
