As the 2017 Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Amazing Half Marathon approaches, a new feature has been added for runners to make an amazing difference in the life of a child. Now, participants in the Amazing Half Marathon weekend can help fundraise to support building of the freestanding children’s hospital. 

The new portal allows individuals or teams to create personalized pages to raise money and tell their stories of why they are participating in the Amazing Half Marathon. A personalized page and message can be shared through email and on social media to generate excitement for this cause. 

“We have received such an overwhelming response from the community on how they can help us in building the new freestanding children’s hospital,” said Shaun Kemmerly, MD, chief medical officer at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital. “This new peer-to-peer portal allows them to be a part of this new facility and to share something they are passionate about with their friends and families.” 

The Amazing Half Marathon Weekend will take place on March 11-12, featuring half-mile and one-mile fun runs, a 5K, a 10K and the signature half marathon. Register online at www.amazinghalf.com/register and start fundraising today at ololchildrens.donordrive.com/event/amazinghalfmarathon.
