We're pleased to announce THE 4TH ANNUAL RYAN'S RUN…..
which will be held on Saturday, August 17th, 2013 at The R-C Sportman's Club in Hannacroix, New York.
We're proud to say we raised $5,000 at The 3rd Annual Ryan's Run
last year, and we couldn't have done it without all the help and support from our family, friends and sponsors like you! Thus far we have raised a total of $13,604…..and we plan to continue our efforts each year!
As a reminder to our previous sponsors and to potential new sponsors…..this benefit is to remember my son…my one and only child…Ryan Lee MacDonald, who passed away from Cystic Fibrosis on November 14th, 2009….at the young age of 23….and to raise awareness of this dreaded disease.
Proceeds raised will be donated to a local, private, charitable foundation called The Donna M. Crandall Memorial Foundation. They are a family run organization with no overhead or administrative costs. It relies entirely on volunteers and donations and every penny raised goes back to CF patients treated at The Albany Medical Center Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Care Center. They provide significant financial assistance to CF patients and their families in need….from helping with bill payments…purchasing durable medical equipment…to simply helping with parking and meals while in the hospital. The Foundation has never had to turn anyone away. They were there for my son and our family while He was cared for at Albany Medical Center.
To this…..my husband Tom and I will forever be grateful for their good deeds……and in turn….will pay it forward.
We are asking previous sponsors to again become current sponsors for this cause…..and are asking any new, potential sponsors to consider joining us in this great and personal cause.
We have set up the "Ryan's Run Donation Fund" through The National Bank of Coxsackie, Faith Plaza, Ravena, New York 12143….phone # 518-756-2185. With sponsorship donations made directly through the bank….we will be setting up the benefit….i.e. food, tee shirts (which provide year round advertisement for your business and is tax deductible), and all necessary essentials. Remaining sponsorship funds, along with proceeds raised during the benefit, will be donated to The Donna M. Crandall Memorial Foundation (www.donnacrandallfoundation.org) in Ryan's name.
Please join us in this very important and heartfelt cause….we hope you'll meet us at the benefit for dinner and maybe we'll see you riding in the motorcycle poker run as well. I have attached a copy of our event flyer for you to share with your friends, family and business associates.
With the most sincere gratitude…..
Family & Friends of Ryan MacDonald
