Emersyn's Entourage Fundraising Update ~ One Week Until the Rebecca Run for SMA!

Hello Everyone,

The countdown is on...only one week to go until the 2010 Rebecca Run for SMA on Saturday, July 10 at Fairy Lake in Newmarket! We set a goal of raising $10,000 and 150 runners/walkers/rollers for Emersyn’s Entourage. We are proud to announce that our team has raised $9715 to date and there are 132 runners/walkers/rollers registered on Emersyn’s team. Way to go everyone this is truly something special! This week is the final push for pledges and we know we can go reach our goal and beyond for SMA. Please continue to let us know how much money you’ve raised so we can continue to watch the numbers rise on Emersyn’s thermometer.

It’s not too late to register for the race or to sponsor our team...online registration closes on Tuesday, July 6th at 9 pm. For all the race details please
