I hope this email finds you well. On Saturday, May 14th I will be participating in A Mile for Maddie, a 1.2 mile fundraising walk to benefit The Maddie James Foundation. I have joined a team for this event and I would be grateful if you would consider supporting my fundraising efforts by joining my team or making a donation.
You may have heard about Maddie James from Dana Point. Maddie was a five-year old kindergartner who was diagnosed with a malignant and inoperable DIPG brain tumor in January. She passed away March 13th.
The Ocean Institute in Dana Point was one of Maddie's favorite places to visit. The Maddie James Foundation is dedicated to raising $1M to complete the Ocean Institute’s capital campaign to build a $4M educational center for K-12 students. With your help, this dynamic facility will be named The Maddie James Seaside Learning Center.
Here is a link to a powerful video about the James Family, The Maddie James Foundation and The Maddie James Seaside Learning Center: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=posgozyXk2E
