We have been thinking of something we could do to in his honor, and this is what we came up with: On Oct. 14th, I am going to run a half marathon on Staten Island, and I am going to use it as an excuse to raise money for a college fund for Aaron and Jonah. I'm calling it my Race for Eli. Before I began training for this, I had never run more than 6 miles; I've never run an organized race in my life.
Eli and Stacy established a 529 tax deferred college savings plan for each of their boys and they have been depositing money from birthdays and other milestones. I'm hoping we as a community can give that fund a big boost.
Thank you so much for your generosity,
P.S. Just so you know, if you do give money, the site automatically asks you to give a 'tip' to support GoFundMe. You can change that 'tip' to $0 if you want. That 'tip' doesn't go to the college fund.
