Well, there you have it. This is my next race. The proceeds of this ultra will go to Liam’s Land whose mission is to “advance the research and identify possible causes of lymphatic malformations by supporting a patient registry and funding further genetic testing and clinical trials”
It is certainly a very worthy cause and I’m so very proud to be doing a small part in helping to find a cure for lymphatic malformations. Now, you can to by supporting this race and signing up!
Soon, I will introduce you to Liam. He is a very special little guy with a heck-of-a-lot of energy! He can tell great jokes too!
Just last week he told me a knock-knock joke that got me real good. Here is how it went:
Liam: knock knock
me: who’s there?
me: “m” who?
Liam points to my head and says: “MT!”
Get it?! Well, he got me!
His parents, Joe and Janet are wonderful people.
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll give you more details as they develop.
All the very best,
