So…I don’t ski.
I don’t roller blade…or skate at all, actually.
I definitely don’t bungee jump, hang glide or sky dive.
I don’t jump rope.
I am not a thrill seeker, and I do not like surprises:)
That’s why it’s pretty surprising that I agreed to rappel down the side of a 14 story building.
My first reaction when I was asked about Over the Edge With Friends was to say…nooo thank you:)
But when I read that it was for Batson…
I had to say yes.
Having Hartley has made me even more aware of how important it is that we have Children’s hospital in Jackson.
I don’t know about you, but it seems every time I log on to Facebook I see a new post about a kid who is suffering…a little boy with cancer…a little girl with a heart problem…a baby born too soon.
Any of them could be my Hartley.
So that’s why I said yes.
Because the kids at Batson are much braver than me.
Because their obstacles are much bigger than a 14 story building.
Because spreading the word about this fundraiser…shimmying down a rope…(I think that’s how this works?) is quite literally the least I can do for a hospital– that could one day save my baby girl’s life.
