One of my dear friends, Chelsea Ball, started working for the Ability Experience last year and has inspired me and one of my best friends, Jennifer Jane Farinella, to get involved with the organization and its mission. The weekend of November 11-12, we will be running in the Geico Rock N Roll Las Vegas half marathon event raising funds and awareness on behalf of people with disabilities. I am taking on this challenge for many reasons, but primarily to support an organization and cause I care deeply about, The Ability Experience. 

Everyone runs for different reasons, but I feel inclined to share with you why I run. Every time my feet hit the pavement, I run in honor of my big brother, Larry E. Tipton (LT2). My big brother suffered and he hurt deeply, and I run in hopes of taking away even the slightest of his pain. I run to be close to him. I run for him and I run towards him. I pray he is with me in every step, in every breathe, and in every beat of my heart. When I run, his pain is my pain. For this particular race, I not only run for him, but I run for people near and far that suffer from any form of pain or disability.

I run for my cousin Kaydin with down syndrome, I run for my cousin Carli that suffers horrible juvenile arthritis, and I run for two of our family friends, the Walters and the Barrs. No matter the pain or disability, emotional/mental/physical, I run for you. I will channel your spirit, your adrenaline, your strength, your love, and your happiness. You are worth it and you are able, and I run for you. 

Funds raised by our team will go to helping provide athletes with disabilities the opportunity to experience endurance events like the one in which I will be participating. It is our team's goal to raise over $25,000 through this event, but I need your help and support to get me to my personal fundraising goal of $800.

Together we can create a community, one relationship at a time, where the abilities of all people are recognized and valued. Please take a moment to make a tax-deductible contribution in support of my half marathon and witness first-hand how your gift will impact the lives of people with disabilities.

On behalf of The Ability Experience and people with disabilities whose lives will be impacted as a result of your support, I sincerely thank you.
