As you push to complete the Marine Corps Marathon, know that your physical and fundraising efforts impact families who need help overcoming dire financial circumstances.
 

“Thank you for helping us. My son being in the ER and having to make trips to the hospital caused me to miss many days of work. As a working parent, this has been a struggle. Thank you for the assistance to help my family get by this month. I truly appreciate it.”


"The girls are so happy they will have their own home again and that we will be together again. Thank you so much! Without your help, we would be homeless. With my new job, it would have taken months to save because of trying to pay for food and shelter for all of us."


We cannot thank you enough for being a part of Team Resilience and for your support of the bleeding disorders community. We look forward to running with you on October 27th.


Go Team Resilience….OORAH!

What we do matters
As we move closer to the MCM, I wanted to share some quotes from those that have received assistance from our Helping Hands program.

Sometimes what can get us across the finish line is realizing that what we do matters. 



Take this motivation and continue to reach out and share why you chose to support Helping Hands with your family, friends and colleagues.

If you need assistance or new ideas on how to reach your fundraising goal, reach out to Ashley at a.smith@hemophiliafed.org! She is happy to assist you achieve your goal. 
Take on the hills
Run more hills.  One of the beauties of hills is that they really work on dynamic power, hip strength and hip mobility. 

Fundraising Tip:
As you train, share your story on social media or through email. Ask friends and family to sponsor the miles you run. For example: if you run 5 miles, they sponsor you for $1 a mile or even $5 per mile. Make a game out of it and offer to match their donation, so if they donate $10 and you donate $10, you just got $20 closer to your goal!
