Thank you for taking the time to learn more about an event and cause that I personally am very excited about! I am working towards raising $2,000.00 ASAP! This money will go directly towards helping Make-a-Wish grant wishes to children with life-threatening diseases and restore strength and hope in their lives. AND... if my team can be one of the first to hit our fundraising goal, we will be rappelling 38 stories down the W hotel, in the heart of downtown Austin. This challenge will represent the moments in life that force you to face your fears. Something that these children and their families work through on a daily basis and a feeling we all understand.
I am teaming up with my colleague and friend Charlie Holliday to take on this challenge. Last year, Charlie's son Matthew was one of the lucky kids in the Central/South Texas region to have his "wish" of getting a playhouse granted. Matthew is now representing the Austin Over The Edge event as a Wish Kid Ambassador! He and his dad are working together to raise money to pay Matthew's wish forward. I personally wanted to be involved in this because not only does this "pay it forward" mentality speak volumes about the type of family the Holliday's are, I also think that this type of attitude is what will continue to spread love and joy in the world.
More than 500 children in the central and south Texas area are diagnosed each year with a life-threatening medical condition. Last year, the chapter in this area granted 266 wishes to local children. We would love your support in making sure that this number continues to go up!
