SheROX Triathilon...

SheROX blog

We are happy to announce that we will be forming a team to compete in the 2010 SheROX Triathlon Series in memory of our little boy Gavin.  You can join our team a few different ways --  The first is to enter the race as an individual, second is to enter the race as a team of three, each completing a different leg of the race and you can also enter as a team of two, with once member completing two legs of the race.

We already have one relay team and are looking to get at least another two teams together.  There is no money being raised it's just a time to help us remember and honor Gavin and the impact he has had on our lives.

There is a fee to enter the race.  All information on the actual race, course map and registration forms can be found on the SheRox webpage.  I will be ordering shirts for our team to wear for race day and training!

What do you think?  Ready to push yourself? 

 I know I am.

I work at A.I. dupont and I often saw your family here. We had something that went through our email yesterday about the donation that was made in honor of Gavin to the hospital...I hadn't known before then that he had passed...I am really sorry for your loss. I was reading through your amazing blog and saw what a beautiful family you have and how you documented Gavin's journey as well as adding his gorgeous little sister in...Gavin is so cute! Yesterday and today another girl and I sat in our office's and read and cried...your story is VERY touching...your story taught us how not to take one day for granted. Its amazing how strong you and your family are and I am sure that you are finding peace with Gavin at rest.

God bless you and your family

Hi! My name is Sarah and I'm a long-time follower of your blog but a first-time commenter. I'm a college student who works with special needs kids. I also follow more than 200 blogs, and I'm sending a very special message to all the blogs I follow: YOU have the chance to be part of a miracle!

Chase Community Giving is awarding $1 million to 5 charities! The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is working to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy - and they could use the money!

Fast Facts:
- SMA is the #1 genetic killer of infants under the age of 2
- 50% of those diagnosed will not live to see their 2nd birthday
- kids with SMA lose the ability to sit, stand, walk, talk, eat, swallow, and breathe
- 1 in 40 people is a carrier
- the National Institute of Health says that SMA is the #1 CURABLE disease if given research funding
- right now there is NO cure and NO treatment

Want to change that? Vote for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation on the Chase Community Giving app on Facebook! You have five votes to tell the world that you want a CURE for SMA!

Tell your friends and blog contacts - let them know they could be part of a MIRACLE - be part of a CURE - and give kids a FUTURE!
