Support a family after loss.

Hi everyone. Thank you for your time and for visiting my site. This is the first, and hopefully, the only time I will create a fundraiser and when you watch the video you will hopefully see why I have decided to take on this challenge. 
Our friend Furz lost his life to colon cancer last August at the young age of 37. He left behind his wife, Kayla, and his two young boys, Brooks and Reid and now they are left to work through life without a loving husband and father. 
I have decided to take up the challenge of running the Providence marathon on May 4th in an effort to raise funds for the Brooks and Reid Opportunity Fund, which was created as a way to help Kayla take care of her family and raise their boys now and in the future. The money will go directly to Kayla and she will have full control of the money without restrictions.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for any and all donations and I hope that you all know just how much this means to me. If you know me you will realize how important this is to me as I am a terrible person to assist in a fundraiser but when something like this happens in life I feel as though I have to do something.
Thank you again for your time and for all your support. I hope you all have a wonderful day and that you live life to the fullest as we never know what awaits us in the future. Live for the moment.

Best wishes agus slan go foill,

Stu (Abu)
