Today we completed the Philly Challenge and what an awesome experience it was! Jarna ran 10km, a quick handover of the kids and catch up and then Phil was off on a 50 mile bike ride!
We were truly humbled by how many people supported us in this event and were able to raise $730 for the Livestrong Foundation! It was refreshing to know that 82c of every dollar goes to Livestrong and is not dwindled away on race costs, management fees etc! Those kind of statistics are hard to come by in charities these days and made it even more inspiring to raise money!
Cancer affects so many and we were happy to represent those so special to us and enjoy the day amongst so many survivors! Jarna's Step-Dad, Pat was told by one of his Dr's "you have been given the gift of cancer" when he explained how great he was feeling both emotionally and physically. Yesterday, this certainly was a thought to ponder as we looked around at all the brave people loving, laughing and living strong....
