Though I am no longer actively raising money, if you wish to donate, I will be leaving the donate button live for donations to Kisses from Katie.
In 2011, I ran to raise money for a worthy cause and raised almost $5k!
2008, my friends Alan and Vickie Manning lost their five month old
daughter Katie to a congenital heart defect. Shortly after their loss,
they started Kisses from Katie
- an organization that offers comfort to children and families in
pediatric intensive care units. Since the organization is run by the
efforts of the Mannings and volunteers, 100% of your donation will go
directly to the cause.
