Dear Friends and Family,

On November 28, 2010 I will be running in the Amica Seattle Half-Marathon in order to raise money for the American Stroke Association.

Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. It is the No. 3 cause of death in the United States, behind diseases of the heart and cancer. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it starts to die.

As many of you know, this is a personal cause for me. On September 21, 2009, my grandma had a major stroke and life for her and us, her family, has never been the same.

I am asking friends and family to consider sponsoring me for this event to help me meet my personal goal of raising $1000 for the American Stroke Association. I would greatly appreciate your kind consideration by making a donation toward this goal. All donations are, of course, tax deductible.

Thank you for your help!

Alissa
