Help us support the LymeLight Foundation
We are excited to partner with Jax Koudele in support of the LymeLight Foundation. Each time Jax's code (wonder16) is used at Amazon through the end of May, Beet Performer will make a donation to the Lyme Light Foundation. Not only will you save 15% on your Beet Performer purchase, but we will donate $1 to the LymeLight Foundation! This foundation is near and dear to Jax's heart. Here is a little about how she came to be involved with this wonderful organization and how she is challenging herself in an effort to raise awareness and money.
In 2012, I became aware of the LymeLight Foundation as I witnessed those extremely close to me suffering from the disease. The LymeLight Foundation provides grants to enable eligible children and young adults with Lyme disease to receive proper treatment and medication as well as raising awareness about Lyme disease, which is the fastest growing infectious disease in the world.
This year, I am competing in the 4 Deserts Grand Slam Plus. I hope to be the first female in the world to complete the 4 Deserts event, while raising funds and awareness for the LymeLight Foundation. The Grand Slam Plus includes running in five 7-day events in 4 deserts and one jungle throughout the world while carrying all my food, sleeping supplies, safety equipment, and everything I need to survive during the entire race in my backpack.
Jax just won the race in Namibia!! Up next is the Gobi March in China in June, the Atacama Crossing in Chile in October and finally the "Last Desert" in Antarctica in November. Please join us in cheering for Jax as she competes in this very challenging event, and help us to raise money for the LymeLight Foundation!
