Mike Brooks tells us:
” I think I bit off more than I can chew as the saying goes. My plan is to try to run 500 miles in a Ten Day race and raise $10,000 for Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine is located on Sebago Lake , Maine and helps seriously ill children and their families. To learn more about Camp Sunshine and why I am doing this race please watch the short video.
Well the fundraising part is going slow mostly because of the economy so I need your help more than ever to reach my goal. If you can make a donation it would be greatly appreciated by me and the kids , some terminally ill ,who you would be helping.
As runners you know about enduring pain. You choose to run and bring on the pain involved knowing that the pain will go away . The kids that go to Camp Sunshine suffer more than most of us could imagine and for some of them their pain will never go away.
Donate by the mile to make me try harder to get to 500 miles or a set amount. Donations can be made at www.tendaysforsunshine.org or mailed to Camp Sunshine , 35 Acadia Road , Casco, ME 04015. If you mail a donation in note that it is for my fundraiser please. If you are going to donate by the mile let me know you are so I will have that much more motivation, I do not need to know the amount per mile. If you know of anyone who might donate please forward this email.

Thanks for your help , Mike
