My Kids' Runners!

I signed up for a wonderful program called I Run For.   The link is:  It is an awesome program that matches runners from all over to your special needs child.  I have signed up Nate, Sofie, Summer, Nik and Alyona.  The runners dedicate their races to the kids and such.  They also are pen pals at times and so much more.  Support, self esteem booster, etc.  It truly is a wonderful program.  We have been matched with such fantastic runners.  Truly, we hit the jackpot!  Nate's runner is a geologist in Canada.  Nik's runner lives in VA, only an hour and a half from where we live now.  Sofie's runner is training and shooting for the Olympics.  Oh yeh, and she's 8yo!  Alyona's runner has been writing her back and forth which is awesome.  And I am just getting started with Summer's runner.  So it is fantastic and we really have had fun with it. 

This was the first letter/ package that Sofie got from her runner.

Everyone was interested as you can see.

Irina reading what Mak wrote Sofie.

Sofie received medals that Mak had sent her from races she had run in.

I think the smile says it all.  After this she kept running around the house outside saying she's running like Mak.  Keep up the great work Mak and all our other runners!  Kids are truly enjoying this adventure.  Hoping to meet a few of them in person for sure.
