Running for Samuel's Charity

Dear Friends and Family - 

As many of you know, I'm running my first marathon. I've decided to also fundraise, to hopefully help me get motivated. A former colleague, Tillie, lost her young son Samuel this past year. He was a remarkable little boy and I would like to honor his memory, by donating to the charity he started before he died. The goal of his charity is to provide children like himself, those going through tough treatments in the hospital, with better equipment and items to help pass the time more easily and comfortably. It's a bit complicated to fundraise because the charity is based in the UK.  So, I'm going to use gofundme and then donate the money (after fees) directly to Samuel's Charity. I hope to help get closer to their goal of raising 50,000 pounds. You can learn more about Samuel's story and the charity here:
