Breaking Down the Walls - Chiari Malformation Virtual Run

I'm running like a mad woman lately.
I've run more in the past few months than ever in my life.

Since I am still far from running a 3.1 without stopping, I'm still in the run/walk mode, but I'm moving and that's what counts.

I've told you all about Chiari Malformation. Well, I've decided to create a Virtual Run.
You pay a registration fee, run or walk at your own pace over a given period, and earn a cool medal.Out of the registration fee of 75% goes directly to Conquer Chiari. The other $25% goes to purchasing the medal and shipping.

The Charity
My best friend's 7yo daughter was diagnosed with this brain malformation at 4 months old. She underwent surgery on August 2013. We are trying to bring awareness.
Chiari Malformation (Arnold-Chiari) is a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord, putting pressure on both the brain and spine and causing many symptoms.

The Medal
We are going with a MineCraft Theme. I will get the medal proof during the week of September 22nd but here is my rough draft:

If you choose not to participate in the run, but wish to donate,
you may also do so via the registration form.
You will receive an certificate from me for your donation.
Thank you to RoadID who is sponsoring this event !
I am excited to host my 1st event. I Promise to hold myself to the standard I expect from every Virtual Host. Honesty !!!
