Title: Marathon Present
Post by: mcaro05 on April 21, 2008, 07:49:37 pm
Hi guys!! This idea just came across me today, so sorry that it is very late notice!!

Melinda is going to be in Detroit right after the Marathon, so I was planning on making her a photo album full of pictures from the weekend and giving it to her. Today, I thought of another idea.

Wouldn't it be neat if people participating in the marathon (including cheerleaders!) and other backups inspired by the marathon write Melinda a letter about their experience? You can send them to me and I will put them in a book for her and give them to her when I see her April 30th.

For example, I am going to write mine about how awesome it is that she inspired us to care about and take action with Malaria No More and I'm going to write about my experiences at the marathon.

So, if you want to write your letter before the marathon, that's cool, just PM it to me or email me (pm me for my email address)
If you are going and want to either bring it to me there or handwrite your letter there, that is fine too. Just make sure you give it to me at a time where I will be able to put it away and not let anything happen to it. (I'll have my backups tote bag with a folder for the letters)
OR you can wait until after the marathon and PM/email it to me BEFORE Wednesday the 30th at noon.

Thanks guys!  :bighug

I'll write one Megan, and I'll PM the letter to you.  It may be close to the 30th though, because I still have to write a letter for Melinda's mom.  Great idea!

I'll write one, Megan!  But it will have to be after the marathon event.  I will just PM it to you.  Thanks for doing this!  Awesome idea!   :bighug
