San Dimas Folks Simply Get Involved
Okay, so I love the title of this blog because it's so true. San Dimas as a community is very involved in many activities from the Western Days Rodeo to the Veteran's Memorial to the Farmer's Market, there is something to do here for everyone!
But today's blog is about how the individual people in San Dimas really care and get involved. I was reading a news story, (ya another article from Linda!) and was simply impressed by the dedication of this family. They are running not one, not two, but FOUR marathons to help raise money for cystic fibrosis research.
Here's how they got involved; Their daughter made friends with another girl at school who happened to have the disease. As she learned and got older she became involved with the CF Foundation and then her parents took up the challenge and became involved.
So this Sunday, May 6th, the family will run the 3rd of four marathons to raise more money. If you'd like to read more of the detailed article click HERE. If you'd like to donate to the CF Foundation click HERE.
On a personal note; my son was actually tested for this disease when he was a baby. Seeing other children with this and other illnesses where they have to gasp to breathe really makes you stop and think how absolutely lucky most of us are to not have to deal with life threatening illnesses or to see the day to day struggles this brings. The very least we can do is help.
