I want to take this opportunity to give a big CONGRATULATIONS to Emily and to Maddie LeVan for not only meeting but also exceeding their goal of raising $52,400 for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. And not only have they exceeded their goal, but they did so with a week to go before the Boston Marathon and the Olympic Trials. The current number (not the final number) is $64,185.

There is also going to be a feature on tonight’s NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams about the Two Trials fund raiser. Unfortunately, I’ll be at Maine Running Company this evening when it airs locally, but it will also be available after 10:00 this evening so that I can stream it over the internet.

For more information, click on these links:

  • Two Trials – Emily & Maddie’s website where you can read about Emily’s training, Maddie’s treatments, and make a donation to further boost their donation to the MCCP.
  • NBC Nightly News Broadcast Times – Find out what time the special will be aired in your area.
  • NBC Nightly News Netcast – Find out how to stream the show over the internet.

Congratulations again to Emily and to Maddie, and good luck to Emily this weekend during the Olympic Trials. I’ll be down there to cheer her on along with the other three Maine women.
