A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Meagan Cross from the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapetics. She heard about the virtual race I’m directing and wanted to put together a story about my cousin’s daughter Kyla, the race, and a little bit about me. The link was posted to the Foundation For Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics Facebook page. That means the 7,388 people that “like” that page will see the story. I’m hoping to get a lot of registrations from that.

About $7 of every registration goes the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics to fund reseach for treatment of Angelman Syndrome.

A special note from Tim…

Hello everyone. This is my first race I’ve every coordinated. It has been a very challenging, but rewarding experience. For those that don’t know, this cause means a whole lot to me. I do many fundraisers during my races to raise money for F.A.S.T. My cousin’s daughter Kyla was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome and I will continue to run for her and all of the other “Angels” .

The other day I offered a contest to win a free entry to the Running For Angels 5k Virtual Race. The winner turned out to be a blogger right here on WordPress! Whitney, the writer of Racing the States won a free entry, a tech tee, and a medal. Soon after getting in contact with her, she invited me to a Facebook group called “Virtual Runs!”. I posted information about my upcoming virtual race, and I have gotten a huge response. Today alone, I have had 11 people from that group register for the race. Whitney’s blog (Racing the States) is well worth reading. I recommend all of you check it out. http://racingthestates.wordpress.com If you like what you read, please “like” her Facebook fan page. http://facebook.com/racingthestates If you would like to learn more about the Running For Angels Virtual Race, please visit http://facebook.com/runningforangels5k.

For those that haven’t, a virtual race is a race that anyone on earth can participate in no matter where they live. The idea is that you run the mileage anywhere you’d like on the race day. With your registration, you usually get a t-shirt and medal for participating. Most virtual races benefit a charity or cause, so you are helping contribute to a greater good by participating.

Last year I ran in the For the Love of the Kids Half Marathon, and had a great time participating. I decided to host my own virtual race this year to benefit The Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics. This cause is very special to me since my cousin’s daughter was diagnosed with this rare disorder. I have done a lot of fundraising for the cause and I envision this race as a much bigger contribution to funding research for Angelman Syndrome. I invite all of you to participate no matter where you are.
