Let the count up begin

This seems a bit backwards, I realize.  But I thought it quite clever when thinking about what we as the Kyrie Foundation are trying to do. 

We have a goal.  We are trying to raise money to fund research to cure the number one cancer killer in children. 

Anyone who has children...
Anyone who loves children...
Anyone who has ever been touched by the life of a child...

This should mean something to you.

Pediatric Brain cancer takes the lives of more and more children each year.  The first time we walked for Kyrie...we walked nine laps.  We walked nine laps to represent the nine children that were diagnosed each day in the United States with this awful disease. 

Last year...we walked ten laps.

This money...that funds the research...that will hopefully cure this disease is more important now than it has ever been.  Children cannot fight for themselves.  We have to do this for them.  Families in the thick of their struggles cannot fight this alone.  We have to do our part to help them. 

So instead of counting down the 44 days that we have left until the 4th Annual Twilight Walk begins...we are going to count up.

We are going to count up with each dollar that is donated.  We have a website that allows you to make a pledge.  You don't have to get out of your chair.  You don't have to leave your house.  You just make your donation and count up with us. 

And know that with each click of your mouse...with every letter that is ARE making a difference in the lives of these children...and in the lives of their families.

So what say you?

Share this website with your family and friends and watch as one person leads to another that leads to another.  You'll quickly see that together...we can make a difference!

We can do this...together. 

Go Kyrie Go!
