Hi everyone! For those of you who don't know our story, Team Jade is Jenzi and Greg Silverman, and our nephew Erik McGuire. We got our name from The Jade Foundation, for which we were honored to fundraise by running the Twin Cities Marathon the past several years. The Jade Foundation has ended, but this year, we are delighted to have chosen another amazing Minnesota nonprofit, Wishes & More, to support with our Twin Cities Marathon Run!

Wishes & More has been around since the fall of 2004. They grant the wishes of young people throughout MN and surrounding states, birth to 18 years, who are battling a life-limiting or terminal condition...and they do a lot more, as their name says! One of the many wonderful ways Wishes & More goes above and beyond any other wish-granting organization in MN is their Scholarship of Hope program. When each Wish Child's wish is granted, he or she ALSO receives a $1,000 grant to apply toward any education after high school. Many Wish Kids have put their Scholarships of Hope to great use, and are realizing their dreams!

Greg and I have heard several Scholarship of Hope recipients talk about this at Wishes & More events, and their joy and gratitude for regaining their health to use the scholarship is heartwarming beyond words, to say the least. So for us, deciding that funding one of these scholarships would be our goal for running the Twin Cities Marathon was a no-brainer. And, by helping us meet that goal, YOU, our friends and family, will be making a real and profound positive difference for a Wish Kid's future!

Won't you please help by sponsoring Team Jade with a donation? ANY amount at all will help, and I know we can do this by Marathon Day, Oct. 6!! Together, we will make a Scholarship of Hope happen! Thanks so very much in advance for your generosity!
