On October 11, Team CdLS runs the 26.2-mile Chicago Marathon in support of children with CdLS. You can be part of the event without ever hitting the pavement by joining Team CdLS in its second phantom marathon — no sneakers required.
You’ll experience the satisfaction of running for someone you love, without needing to stretch a muscle, quicken your stride or ice your knee. To learn more and request your Phantom Runner Kit, call 800-753-2357, email events@CdLSusa.org , or go online, http://www.cdlsusa.org//teamcdls/phantom_marathon_2009.html.
This fall, the Foundation introduces an event that is truly divine. New Englanders are invited to attend Vines, Wines and Meaningful Times, a wine tasting event in Coventry, CT to benefit the Foundation on September 26.
Guests enjoy a tour of the Cassidy Hill Vineyard cellars, taste unique wines, view the beautiful countryside, and spend some quality time with friends.
Proceeds help provide much-needed services to those affected by CdLS and their families. In the midst of a hectic-paced society, who knew that awareness and fundraising could be done by relaxing with a glass of your favorite wine? This event is sure to be a barrel of fun!
To RSVP or to receive more information about hosting your own wine tasting to benefit the Foundation, email events@CdLSusa.org or call 800-753-2357. The Foundation is “grapeful” for your support! – JS
