Dean's 2017 Challenge

Our little superhero is 7, healthier than he has ever been and just started his first baseball season on the A's. It is sometimes hard for us to believe he fights the fight every day because his outlook on life remains more positive than ever. He loves to play sports, play his iPad, have picnics, sing, dance, have Nerf gun wars, give huge hugs, do the right thing and dream big. After a year of asking if he can participate and another year begging and finally a third year convincing us he could absolutely do it, we are excited to let you know that this November 5th Dean will take on his first Climb for Life -- 58 flights up, over 1,200 steps and he CANNOT wait. He is training, excited and committed to raising more than we have ever raised in a year! Help him by steping out of your comfort zone - take on that challenge you have been talking about - do it for him, do it for yourself, do it knowing life is short and each day is a gift.  Can you handle a 5k, a 10k, a marathon, a triathlon, an ironman, a bike race, a walk, a hike, a climb?  Will you accept his challenge, share your story, be your best today and maybe even raise a little money for CF as you do so? #ohthepossibilities #faithnotfear
Please see our calendar of events below. We will not be at the Orland Park Great Strides because of another personal commitment for our family but would love if you continue to help us fundraise by donating and sending out Dean's climb page here
We will send another note in a few weeks with details on the Frankfort 157c walk for CF in May and the Chillin' & Grillin' in Frankfort in September. Please accept Dean's challenge, share his fight and help us reach his goal.  xo

Ironmen and Women for a Cure

4 awesome friends are training together for a Full Ironman in Wisconsin and have a Facebook page you can follow here. Their posts are heartfelt, fun and inspiring.

Some of Dean's favorite moms are taking on a sprint triathlon too. We couldn't let Dean take the challenge alone this year!
