aaron team challenge 2



Hi everyone,
I wanted to take a moment and brag about a wonderful challenge that my 21 year old son, Aaron, has taken on.  Aaron has begun training with Team Challenge which trains people to run endurance races while raising money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.  Aaron will be running the Napa to Sonoma 1/2 marathon this July.  Aaron is one of the kindest and hard working people you could ever meet.  He has learning differences, so hard work and the need for persistence has always been part of his life.  Aaron really lives by the motto of “don’t let what you can’t do, interfere with what you can do!”
Aaron is in the process of his training and raising money for this cause and would love it if you would check out his web page.  He wants me to let everyone know that he would be “soooo” (his word) appreciative if you would like to support him with a donation of any amount.  At the bottom of his page is a place for comments, and as his mom, I know that any words of encouragement would mean a huge amount to him:)

Thank for your interest and any help you can offer.

Karen Silverman
