This is Julia, she is eight years old, and lives with neurofibromatosis, which is a unpredictable genetic mutation that causes tumors to develop in nerve tissue. NF is a progressive disorder that affects 1 in 3,000 births and can show up in any family, at any time. NF can produce tumors, bone deformations, learning disabilities, deafness, blindness, malignancies, and chronic pain.
And there is no cure.
In an effort to help meet the fundraising goal given to me by NY Road Runners, some fabulous companies have donated products for this giveaway. This time around, there will be multiple winners. Starting Friday July 29th, I will pick one winner per week, and they will have their choice of two items up for grabs.
Here is the lineup:
2. Three items fromTommie Copper, copper infused compression wear to address a natural solution for pain.
I have a pair of Ryders that I love, they stay in place during a sweaty run, and the lenses do a great job blocking out glare.
4. One large runner girl charm necklace from Lift Your Sole:
5. An U
A GU Performance Energy sampler, along with a Gel Bot. I am a huge fan of GU, I used the gels durning training for my first marathon. On long runs I would start with a caffeine free strawberry banana about four miles in. If I had a second one, it would be one of the flavors with caffeine, to give me an extra boost to get me through to the end. Chocolate is the best : )
7. Two pairs of Wrightsocks, one set in size large, one set in size medium.
Two Fitness Towels from Inperspire, (chosen by Colleen, the Irondiva)
A Sweaty Band in this pattern: this was chosen by Colleen
