This year, Jump Rope for Heart is a big deal to my 10-year-old, “because, you know, you had a heart attack Mom.”
Owen figured he had a pretty persuasive fundraising argument and could raise a lot of money, so he set his goal at $1,000. With five days left to go, he’s at $850. My husband and I have decided to match whatever he raises.
- I’m 10 yrs. old
- I have a little brother[Noah]
- My Mom had a heart attack last summer!
Who can say no to that? It was so rewarding and humbling to work with Owen on his fundraising goal, an email to family, and his web page. He was so mature, so generous, so idealistic, so young. He smiled and hugged and wanted to check over and over to see if any donations came in. He couldn’t wait to tell his gym teacher.
Of him I am extraordinarily proud.
