Fundraising for the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation this weekend

Below is the email I sent to all the friends in my address book about our groups first event, the Guns N Hoses 5k in Woodstock.

Dear friends,

You might have heard of the running group I have formed called Sweet Sara's Chargers. Our story was featured in our local paper, The Cherokee Tribune recently. Nearly 30 of my closest friends and family..and even a few new friends have all been training for two months to run and walk in our first fundraising event...The Guns N Hoses 5k this coming Saturday in Woodstock. Most of our team members are beginners that have never done anything like this before. We are all asking for donations to be made to the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation to honor all of our hard work, but more importantly to honor Sara and everything that she has been through overcoming CHARGE. The CHARGE Syndrome Foundation has become our lifeline and a very important part of our daily lives. Please help us support this wonderful, caring organization by sharing this email with your friends and by making a donation. No amount is too small.

Babies born with CHARGE suffer life-threatening birth defects. Despite hearing loss, vision loss, balance problems and a host of other serious medical problems, many of these children overcome insurmountable challenges to far surpass expectations. Thanks to the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation, individuals with CHARGE syndrome and their families have a place to turn for information, research, support and hope. Attendance at one of our biennial conferences can be a life-changing event: an opportunity to meet with other families and professional experts.

Thank you.
Melissa, Grant, Griffin and Sara, and the entire Sweet Sara's Chargers team.
