There are so many great ways that YOU can make a difference and be part of the CURE!  Although our annual golf outing takes up a good chunk of the summer and it often appears that it’s the only activity going on, we are happy to announce that other fundraisers have also been taking place or are in the works!

Wrapping up the month of July, Tri for Kali’s Cure took place in Lexington, Michigan.  23 athletes participated in the Lexington Triathlon to support Kali’s Cure.  The group completed a 500 meter swim, 11 mike bike ride, and 5K run.  After a grueling morning, the team enjoyed the remainder of the day at the annual Stoutenburg family Luau where the participants continued to support Kali’s Cure while winding down from a tiring event!!!

On October 10, 2010, Kali’s Cure will make its second appearance in the annual Chicago Marathon.  Team Crazies, consisting of Andy and Christine Schaefer, Tom Gruca and Kathy Wheeler, will complete the 26.2 mile run through the streets of Chicago.  The group has been training for months and, despite many sore muscles and long, tiring runs, they are geared up and ready to run for the CURE!  Follow their progress throughout the marathon here.

This fall, K-Mart of Alma will host a Safety Day on October 23rd.  They have already been putting time and effort into this event by kicking off the fundraising with a car wash and spreading the word through town.  The event will conclude on Saturday the 23rd at the Alma K-mart store where there will be activities for kids of all ages.  Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in everything from facepainting and balloon pops to touring firetrucks and talking with local police officers.  A special thanks to the Alma K-Mart store for hosting and putting on the event.  All proceeds from this event will benefit Kali’s Cure .

Now that school is back in session, there are numerous ways for students of all ages to participate in their own fundraising efforts or simply undertaking projects to spread the word about Kali’s Cure and spinal cord research.  If you are interested in more information, please contact kali@kaliscure.org.

As always, thanks to all those who have dedicated so much to Kali’s Cure.  The foundation would not be a success without your support.
