For the Kids!!

FOR THE KIDS!!

This May, I will be walking 310,000 steps (10,000 steps per day) to help Children's Medical Research Institute (CMRI) find cures for genetic diseases and childhood cancers


  • 1 in 20 children face a birth defect or genetic disease 
  • Cancer is triggered by genetic changes and is a leading cause of death in children aged 4–14
  • 30% of all admissions to children’s hospitals are due to genetic conditions


Both my husband and 2 girls have a genetic condition so this is something close to our family! When our girls grow up and have children they will have a 50% chance of passing the condition on, so any and all of the research done now may help them and others in the future!  


Please join me in raising awareness for genetic conditions by making a donation today! 

Thank you to our Sponsors
