These days it seems like every time I turn around I am being reminded of the ripple effect of little Wylder James. They are moments in my life that literally take my breath away, and continually remind me of the goodness of people in this World.
We were speaking with Phil the other day about the affect/wonderfulness of his run for the Boston Marathon this year in honor of Wylder and the support he felt from Wylder Nation. Phil felt the ‘IT’ factor … he felt Wylder, he felt the Nation of Warrior’s behind him, and continues to be ever so grateful for all that was contributed for that race by YOU. It turns out the Running For Rare disease team has raised over $90,000 in 2013 for NORD because of the marathon and rare disease day. This is a triumph and a tribute to our rare disease community coming together. So Phil let Steven and I know he wants to race with Wylder again this month (actually in about a week!!!). This time to pay it forward by showing his continued support for our rare disease community and WYLDER NATION!!! What an honor. He also introduced us to Kelsey who felt she wants to be part of something bigger and run for a cause too … run for rare disease … run for Wylder. WOW!! So Phil and Kelsey are preparing to run … get ready for it …
A 100 MILE race
on June 14th in Weston, MA.
The dedication, remarkableness and training it takes to accomplishes races like this is mind boggling. They both feel Wylder is going to show them the way.
They have each created a fundraising effort to extend the playlist of songs you all helped to create for Phil’s run in the Boston Marathon. It is $5.00 to donate a song for them to listen too during their race… they estimate this run will require about 400 songs. With Wylder in their hearts, their fundraising efforts for this race are going to go to Wylder’s Research Project. WOW!! Here is how to donate;
Wylder’s Research Project is collaboration with TGen and Wylder Nation Foundation. That’s right! … Wylder Nation Foundation! (Updates on our foundation developments coming soon) In the meantime, 100% of your donations to either Kelsey or Phil’s First Giving Page are tax deductible. You can learn more about Wylder’s Research Project here;
As Wylder continues to show us his ripple effect through Phil, Kelsey, and many others … we also shared this run and fundraising effort with our Wylder Nation Foundation partners, and unbelievable friends at Giving Hope World Wide. Showing their continued love and support for Wylder they have generously agreed support Phil and Kelsey by MATCHING dollar for dollar up to $20,000 for Wylder’s Research project! WOW! We feel beyond blessed and are truly humbled by the amazing people Wylder continues to bring into our lives and we are reminded simply that prayer changes things.
I get tears in my eyes every time I think of the incredible impact of Wylder James and the support system of Wylder Nation Warrior’s He has given us that continues to make us know that the power of Wylder will change the World. God is good. People like Phil, Kelsey, Giving Hope World Wide and YOU, continue to leave your mark on US by showing strength, perseverance, support and love for Wylder. We feel so blessed and supported as so many continue to show your love and support and believe in what we are doing. Thank you. Wylder, you are our guiding light and we love you so much, thank you for showing us the way and continuing to bring such amazing people into our lives. WE BELIEVE! xoxo
