Running for the Cure - Granpda John

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to tell you about a very special person that we have 'met' through the wonders of the internet! Grandpa John, ill let his words explain what he is doing to kick neuroblastoma's butt!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is John Raschke, but I am
> better
> known as Grandpa John to all of my Little Buddies. My Little Buddies are
> all
> of the children and their families who fight this horrible disease called
> neuroblastoma. Before any one asks , no I do not have a family member or
> loved one fighting NB. I was introduced to it by a very special young man
> named Cody Johnson and his wonderful father Mickey. It is because of his
> courage and suffering in his fight against NB that I made this promise to
> all of you whom I love:
> "I will continue to run to raise awareness of neuroblastoma (and hopefully
> funds for research) until my legs get too old or tired to run, and then
> I'll
> just have to let my Heavenly Father carry me onward in my racing till the
> cure is found.- This is my promise to you and I shall forever keep it"
> In keeping with my promise I will begin a 330 mile journey run on May 15,
> 2009. The name of this run is called:
> "From the Border to the Bridge - Fighting Childhood Cancer - a 330 mile
> Running Odyssey" Raising Awareness of Childhood Cancer By Promoting
> Bicycle
> & Pedestrian Safety: A Memorial to Mitch Butler, Redford MI.
> Here in lies the reason for my request. Would you please send me the name
> or names of those whom you'd like me to dedicate this run to. I'd also
> like
> the names of our Angels too so I may dedicate this run to their memory. I
> will make up a few iron on decal shirts with their names on it and upload
> pictures of the same to the run's blog site, which is.
> Also, if you wouldn't mind I humbly request a picture or two of my Little
> Buddies. I'll print them up and either wear them around my neck on lanyard
> as I run or place them on a poster board I am making up for all to see in
> the cities I stop in or run thru. I know I have quite a few pictures
> already
> but to I'd like start anew for this as I want to ensure that I don't over
> look any precious "Little Buddy or Angel"
> My email address is:
> I love all of you
> God Bless,
> Gj

THANK YOU GRANDPA JOHN FOR RUNNING WITH DEQLANS PIC AROUND YOUR NECK AND FOR INCLUDING US IN YOUR JOURNEY. Good Luck and stay in touch. Thank you for doing this for all the angels and warriors around the world

God Bless
