Time to get personal :) I’ve always wanted to be a runner. I have started and stopped the ‘Couch to 5K’ program multiples times. Unfortunately, I am not a runner. I think I’ve finally come to terms with this. Walking though? Yes! I can totally walk! And thankfully, most of you can too!
And now the reason for this: Mothers Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes (Facebook). I want to see this milk bank get up and running (pardon the pun) so bad. I know many people personally who are working incredibly hard to make it happen. This non-profit is being started in order to accept breast milk donations, pasteurize those donations, and distribute that milk to premature and ill infants who need it the most. Human milk is so important for these babies; it reduces their risk of life-threatening conditions by six times versus formula when they weigh less than 5.5 lbs.
And to sweeten the deal further…
For every session booked (contract signed, deposit sent) between now and the walk/run on September 10th, I will donate half of the session fee to Mothers Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes. So, of the $75 session fee, $38 (yes, I’m even rounding up) will help benefit this wonderful cause so that they can someday soon help lots of little babies thrive and grow up big and healthy!
If you know of anyone who might be interested in this cause, please don’t hesitate to spread the word!
