Leaving for Las Vegas!

Hi my friends. It really is one of those days where I sit here and really can’t believe that in less than 48 hours I will be in Las Vegas getting ready to start our 2008 project!

As of today since May 1st, 2008 we have raised close to $240,000!!! Our goal by Oct. is $500,000. thankful are we for the love, support and belief to each of you for without this it would not be possible.

Please pray for us along the way that we have a safe journey from Las Vegas to the summit of Mt. Whitney. Please follow along on the www.lisas810 web site and blogs and take time to send me a blog me when the going gets tough and it will hearing from you will get me through the extra miles!!!

Some great news:) Sister Marybeth who has inspired me for many years and who is on the 810 crew for the run and the bike will be coming to the Tetons in Aug. to run the Grand Teton marathon on Aug. 31st. After she completes the marathon and before the awards ceremony Sister Marybeth will be giving a presentation on “running for a purpose and or sporting for a purpose.” Really to help us all know that small acts of kindness do make a difference, we can and do all make a difference.

I hope you will consider coming to the Tetons races, run a race, volunteer and be part of the action!

When you have a few moments take a look at the updated web site!


We now have on-line donations set up and we will have a “live tracking device” so you will be able to see where we are all the time!!!

If you feel the love pass on the web site and the information to other’s. If you are not on our mailing list to receive our Dreamchaser newsletter you should think about signing up:)

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”. DREAMS REALLY DO COME TRUE!!!

Check it out:)

I will think about each and everyone of you while I am on the road, I will be thinking and supporting the things you are striving to do as well.

God Bless and love you



Dream Big!
