My beautiful Baby girl turned 11 months today. Against all odds and her diagnosis she is thriving and is such a happy baby. She smiles everyday and continues to fight fight fight. What sustains her is a steady diet of Love. We will continue to fill her with love every second of every day.
Thank you everyone for your support of the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation we were able to achieve the impossible. A foundation run by 2 parents in their home was able to compete against the largest organizations in this country and take 6th place out of over 500,000 charities. Oh I almost forgot WITHOUT spending a dime on marketing. The other organizations we were competing against spent thousands marketing their campaign. We as a community had something they could not buy, PASSION. Thank you for your support GSF won 100k as their prize and plenty of exposure and awareness.
I want to thank Mempham High School whose students did a walk for Sophias Cure and raised over $9,000.00. Molloy College just completed a fundraiser that raised over $2,800.00, thank you so much all of this money will go a long way towards research.
We have 2 upcoming events and 2 more are in the works! Our first event is being run by the incredible students at Kennedy High School. The Fundraiser will be held March 20th at Kennedy High School in Merrick. I will be updating everyone as the event draws nearer. The second event is a Benefit Concert being thrown at Suny Cortland. The event will be on Sunday April 11th from 6-11 pm at the Corey Union Function room. So far there are three bands playing.
If you have an idea for a fundraiser in your area please feel free to contact me.
Thank you everyone for your continued support! Thank you for taking part in a Miracle!
