My friend Jamie Moniz is running the marathon to support her father-in-law, who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (cancer of the plasma cell) this year. She and her husband Brian have been wonderful friends, joining Bren out at Burning Man, helping to build the impossible dome we'll be enjoying this summer, generally being supportive of our every endeavour. Brian began the marathon training first, and rather than let her man fight the battle on his own, Jamie bravely decided to join him, despite the intimidation that a lifetime of NOT running and a severe knee injury (requiring screws and all kinds of icky things) brings.
Jamie needs to raise $4200 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by TOMORROW (Friday 1st August). She still has about $2000 to go. If you can, please donate as much as you can, whether it's $25 or more.
Despite a nagging ankle issue that would have benched many a runner, Jamie is persevering. Read about her training so far here, and donate here.
DO IT! Random Acts of Kindness! NOW!
