In July this year KD Warrior Mum & KD Foundation President Meagan Mitchell set her sights on participating in her very first half marathon to raise funds and awareness for Kawasaki Disease.
Meagan set up a race team, a fundraising website, flyers, events page, T-shirts etc to try and get as many followers as she could to this event. She had a goal of $2,000 in mind which she reached with the help of all the KD Supporters.
In conjunction with this event Meagan promoted it at her son’s daycare where they held a Super Hero Day to talk about Kawasaki Disease and shared Aurora’s story through the daycare Newsletter and why Meagan was running.
This event was a huge success… not only did it get the message out about Kawasaki Disease but we now have some additional funding to help go towards purchasing a Kawasaki Disease Foundation tent so that we can use towards future events. WATCH THIS SPACE.
Meagan’s next big event will be the Melbourne Marathon in October 2019, if this is something you would be interested in helping out with or participating in please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
