2010 Rebecca Race Honouree - Emersyn Paige Klomp

Hello Everyone,

We sent out an email in February inviting everyone to join Emersyn’s Entourage at this year’s Rebecca Run on Saturday, July 10th at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, Ontario. As everyone knows this year Emersyn is the race honouree. In her honour, our goal is to raise $10,000 and register 150 walker/runners on Emersyn’s Entourage. So far we have 35 people registered on her team, which is a great start!

Should we meet either of these two goals Jason Klomp, Nick Dean, James Wilson, James Dunsmuir and Adam Gizzie have agreed to shave their heads. In addition, we have added two more brave men to the head shaving party. Mr. Steve Palmer and Mr. Dave Brannon have agreed to shave their heads should we register 150 walkers/runners for the race. Thanks gentlemen for volunteering.

The early bird deadline for the race is Friday, April 30th. After this date the fees go up so please register soon. If you are unable to attend, but want to contribute in some way there are two options 1) Register anyway and you will be helping us attain the goal of 150 runners/walker or 2) Go to
http://www.runningroom.com/ and search for either Melanie or myself to sponsor us for the race. To register visit http://www.rebeccarun.com/. All proceeds from the event go directly to Families of SMA Canada. Please forward this email to any friends, family or co-workers that may be interested in joining her team.

Melanie, Emersyn and I need your help, finding a CURE for SMA is not a goal we can achieve alone so we are asking for your help. Please join us in walking, running or rolling for a CURE for SMA while at the same time helping us to honour our beautiful daughter Emersyn who has been taken from this earth far too soon.

Change starts with just one step, please help us to create millions of steps by joining the 2010 Rebecca Run/Walk/Roll towards a CURE for SMA. Looking forward to seeing everyone and your families at this special event.


Melanie, Jason and our angel Emersyn
