In case we haven’t met, I’m Caroline Lanctot. I was injured in a car accident when I was ten months old. That was over 10 years ago. I am going to race in my wheelchair in the Trenton Half-Marathon on Nov. 9th 2013…with a little help from my friends. And that could mean you!
This is so cool. Whether you are an experienced runner or this is your very first time participating in a race, I can’t thank you enough for joining my team. I’m so excited about being in my 2nd Trenton Double Cross Half Marathon.
As you can imagine, this isn’t something I do every day but we’ll have fun on Saturday, Nov. 9th. Better yet, we will all be raising money to make my life easier. I’m making progress but there is so much more I want to do in my life. Crossing that “Trenton Makes The World Takes” Bridge on race day with all of you alongside me in my chair is just one of those things!
Here’s what to do to run-walk-race with me:
1. Go to the "REGISTRATION" link above and enter your information and pick a shirt size and style. From there you'll be taken to the official registration page for the "Trenton Half Marathon and 10K". Be sure to select Caroline's Hope as the charity you're running for so they know you're on TEAM CAROLINE!
You'll get a confirmation email from both Team Caroline and the Trenton Half.
2. Ask everyone you know to pledge financial support by purchasing "Miles of Hope" at $20.00 per mile. Every Mile you race with me will mean a bigger contribution. Or ask supporters to follow this link so they can pledge right online here. No amount is too small.
3. Send this page to everyone you know! The more the merrier. I want to walk. I want to talk. I want to get rid of this ventilator. I’m getting closer but I need your help.
Check back here if you have any questions or ideas to help make our day fun and successful. We welcome your input.
P.S. See you on Saturday, November 10!
