1/30/09 – Well done Kate!

I’ve mentioned my friend Kate a few times and that her brother was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis last year. This past weekend she ran a half marathon in Miami to raise money to support research for Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis. Her NY Team In Training alone raised $251,000 and all of the teams together raised $1.6MM!

Kate said “It was such an amazing experience - I had the chance to meet a lot of people who either have these illnesses or are affected by somebody who does and it not only gave me more insight, but it was really comforting and inspirational as well!”

Well done Kate! And thank you to all of you who supported her. As a reward Kate got to pick the song of the day. Her choice was Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand.
