      My brother is raising money for charity by running. Please read below. He is doing an awesome thing and if you can contribute anything please do so. He is a true hero. And he is also a huge Sierra buff like all of us. 🙂

      From Paul Kennerly:

      Join me in supporting the A-T Children’s Project by sponsoring me in my fundraising efforts. I am raising money for a cure or life-improving therapies for a rare genetic disease called ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T). Visit my fundraising page, and please pass it on to your friends! Either click on the link below, or copy and paste the link into your web browser.

      I am involved with a tremendous organization – one that’s racing to find a cure for ataxia-telangiectasia, or A-T for short. A-T is a rare genetic disease that attacks children. Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, cancer, and immune deficiencies –all rolled into one fatal disease. Children who could once run and play, sing and talk, and read and write lose their motor skills one by one. Sadly those suffering from A-T are usually in wheelchairs by age ten, and often do not survive their teens. And, because of the multifunctional role of the A-T protein in cells, A-T research has far reaching public health implications for more prevalent diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cancer, AIDS, metabolic syndrome and diabetes.

      On January 10 and 11, I will be participating in the Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge, which is a half marathon on Saturday and a full marathon on Sunday at Disney World. I will be part of the A-T CureTour Marathons and Races, a group of runners, joggers and walkers who raise money by participating in endurance events and races around the country for the A-T Children’s Project. The A-T Children’s Project is a public charity that raises funds to support and coordinate biomedical research projects, scientific conferences, and the A-T Clinical Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital all aimed at finding a cure or life-improving therapies for A-T. By registering with the A-T Children’s Project for the Goofy Challenge, I can help this unbelievable group of families and friends coping with this devastating disease and make a real difference for these children.

      I am excited that you now have the opportunity to join me in helping these kids while furthering research for other more prevalent diseases. My personal goal is to raise $600.00 by December 19, 2008.

      For a $20 donation, I will place your name on my race shirt for the half marathon. For a $30 donation, I will place your name on my race shirt for the full marathon. And for $50, I will place your name on my race shirt for both races.
      That’s a little more than $1 per mile for your sponsorship!

      Please click on the link below to access my fundraising webpage.
      If the link does not work, please visit the website at http://www.atcp.org and click on the Donate Now link where you will find the link to “Support a Marathoner.” You can search for my fundraising web page by choosing the Search link next to my race. By supporting me, you will be making a tremendous impact on this grassroots charity that has achieved so much with so little. If you have any questions about A-T or the A-T Children’s Project, please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Thornton, Executive Director directly at 800-5-HELP-A-T (800-543-5728) or jennifer@atcp.org

      Thank you so much for your donation!
