Coach (Michele) Guyer's Love Fund

Those of you who know Coach Guyer know that you have probably met a real-life Angel. This wonderful wife and mother of three is not only retired from the Air Force and a current kindergarten teacher at Scobee Elementary, but she also volunteers as one of the coaches for "Kids Run San Antonio". Coach Guyer is actually the founder and visionary for "Kids Run San Antonio" and volunteers all of her spare time practicing , training and running races with kids that she has trained.  Then, she continues the rest of her day going from race-to-race and to various sporting events cheering on students in the games or the kids who are running because she helped train them recently or in the past! I can't say enough about this amazing woman. I know she has touched so many lives with her selfless and generous acts. She takes the time to talk to EVERYONE because she genuinely cares about their lives. She inspires me to do more, to give more and to appreciate more every single day. On that note, I need to let you know why I have started this Love Fund. First of all, I know that she would have said "NO WAY" if I were to tell her about setting up this page, but I'm sure after she sees the overwhelming responses (donations & words of encouragement) that we are sure to have, she will realize that's it's ok to be on the receiving side of love and kindness every once in a while.

The main reason I started this page is because Coach Guyer lost her mom this past Sunday (Feb. 15th) due to health issues that have been developing over the past few months. Her mom lived in Pennsylvania (where Coach Guyer is originally from) and it has taken a great amount of financial effort for her family of five to make the drive to Pennsylvania. This financial strain along with taking leave from work after having two kids go through surgeries, one right after the other, the medical expenses piling up, would cause any woman I know to break down. But not Michele Guyer. She never missed a practice for our "Kids Run San Antonio" group, even while her kids were recovering from their surgeries. She never asked anyone for help because she didn't want anyone to have to go out of their way. She is the epitome of a strong woman. Finally, we have the opportunity to show how much we love her. This time we get to help her be strong. This time we get to take some of the weight off of her shoulders. Any amount that you can give would be greatly appreciatated. This is just a small way that we can try to pay her back for being such an honestly good person to everyone she comes in contact with. We truly want to show Michele Guyer that she has made an impact in the world and SHE HAS TRULY PAID IT FORWARD!!!                  -Cynthia Ortiz
