Hi Everyone!

The 2011 Rebecca Run is approaching fast and we wanted to give a quick Emersyn’s Entourage update. So far we have an amazing 70 people registered on our team and have raised more than $1,000 towards SMA research! We know that number will increase as race day approaches as our team continues to collect donations for the big day. Thank-you to everyone for your hard work and fundraising efforts we truly appreciate your support! If you have raised money please send us an email to let us know so we can add it to our grand total for race day.

Just a reminder that people can still register for the 1km fun run, 3km walk/run and/or 5km walk/run. Click here to register. Once you have registered please let us know so we can add your name to Emersyn’s team. For race details including start-times, race kit pick-up, directions, etc. please visit www.rebeccarun.com. If you plan to pick-up your race kit on race day please come early to avoid line-ups. If you are unable to attend but wish to support us click here.

This year is the 10th anniversary for the Rebecca Run for SMA and we look forward to seeing everyone on race day to share in this vitally important day! Your support and ongoing dedication to helping us find a CURE for SMA means more than you know. You are not only helping us to honour our beautiful daughter Emersyn, you are also giving hope to so many children battling SMA.

If you have any questions or concerns about the 2011 Rebecca Run please contact Melanie or Jason at emersynpaige@gmail.com

With so much appreciation, love and HOPE!
