Beads of Courage is an organization that means so much to me! Please help us raise the funds we need so that children and teens coping with serious illness can record, tell and own their stories of courage. Beads of Courage provides arts-in-medicine programs for children coping with serious illness, their families and the clinicians who care for them. Every Beads of Courage program uses the bead, a historical art form, that is given to commemorate and celebrate moments of courage. They have a program for children in active treatment, for siblings, for parents, and a personal passion of mine...there is also a Beads of Courage Program that helps nurses and other clinicians stay strong as they give of their heart and soul everyday caring for children with serious illness. As a former bedside pediatric oncology nurse, I know personally the strength it takes to stay strong at the frontlines of caring for children and teens coping with cancer. My hope is to raise enough funds this year that I can personally deliver the Beads of Courage Bead Mindful Program to nurses.
My goal is to raise $1,500 for Beads of Courage during my training to ride in El Tour de Tucson for Team Beads of Courage on November 18th.
I will be 43 years old this year when I ride in the El Tour de Tucson for Team Beads of Courage. I just need 43 friends to make a $35 donation and I will meet my fundraising goal! For every supporter that donates $35 I will send you a bead from my Carry a Bead kit. Beads make the world go around and I am gratefulf for your support!
Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for supporting my ride for Team Beads of Courage...together we make healing happen!
Make Your Miles Matter More!
