On January 20th, one of my dear friends (Edward Flores) unexpectedly passed from a massive heart attack at only 52 years old, leaving behind 2 young daughters. He was an amazing soul who impacted many lives, including mine (anyone who keeps up with the local Austin music scene may recognize the name!) I was wracking my brain, thinking of ways to help this loving family when I came up with this idea:
I will be doing my first half marathon in February & for those who know me well, know that I am NOT a hard core runner! I would much rather punch & kick some bags than run a daunting 13 miles! Soooo....I am starting the following "fundraising bet": "I bet $___ that Andrea CAN run the whole 13 miles (NO WALKING ALLOWED!)! ALL of the money betted will be donated to the Flores' family! Not only will your bet help a wonderful family, but you will also help motivate me to get through running 13 miles! I do not like asking people for ANYTHING. . . EVER! But think of the impact that you could make on 1 family! $1, . .$2. .whatever you can give! I will put your name on the sympathy card (or I wil give you the family's information to send an uplifting note to them yourself!). I believe that we are placed on this earth to help each other out in times of distress. Your small donation will be HUGE in the eyes of this family.
I appreciate all of you so much!
Love,
Andrea
