Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

- Ambrose Redmoon

The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.

As you well know, Nate and I are not the type to ask for help.  But to be 100% honest with you, paying Xavier's medical bills is not easy.  Somehow through faith, prayer, hard work and supportive families we are always able to make it each month and for that we are so grateful!!  Last month we were approached by a "friend of a friend" who runs an organization called Steps Together...As per their website they are an organization who:

lets you directly help families and non-profits in our community while participating in a local road race as part of a team. 
We endorse a number of worthy local beneficiaries. You decide which you would like to support.  
This fall, STEPS TOGETHER has selected to participate in The Steelplechase Distance Walk/Run on September 30th, 2012.  The race, which supports the nearby Steeplechase Cancer Center, is based in Hillsborough and is one of the fastest growing road races in New Jersey.  The race offers a variety of events, including a 5K Walk, 5K Run, 25K Run and Children's Sprints.
Those wishing to join the STEPS TOGETHER team should first register for The Steeplechase Distance Walk/Run, then mail your donation to support the beneficiary of your choice.
As a team member of STEPS TOGETHER, you will receive guided training via email with training tips and suggested workouts, invitations to attend group training sessions, and fundraising advice should you choose to expand your donation network.   You will also receive a team shirt to wear on race day which will highlight both team sponsors and participating beneficiaries.  
We are super excited and honored to join them this year.  We really want all of our families and friends to come out and join us.  It is very easy to register with Steps simply go to the website and follow the three easy steps.  Xavier, Nate and I will be doing the 5K walk, but their is also a 5K run and a marathon.  The race itself is for a cancer treatment center so your race registration will go to them, but your Steps Together registration and all the money your raise will go to Xavier.  Our team, called TEAM XTREME, is also able to take business donations as if you company or business is interested in helping, that would be great.  You can get all the info needed from the Steps Together website:
