Run Julia Run, and Bee A Blessing!
On Sunday, November 12th, Julia Kuhn from Ocean City, along with her sister and her father, will be running in the Brooklyn Half-Marathon to benefit a non-profit that they've created.
This charity was made in honor of her Aunt Janet Clendining Elliot, who was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at the small age of 6. Janet spent the entirety of her life courageously battling this disease with nothing short of grace, optimism and dignity. Her zest for life was never taken away until the day she past away back in February.
The family named the non-profit: Bee a Blessing, Inc.
A foundation that embodies the essence of Janet and aims to raise money and awareness for causes she valued, including children, animals, and organ and tissue donation. Its primary focus is to provide comfort to children who are struggling with their own medical hardships, and to do so with the joy, optimism, courage and humor Janet so naturally possessed.
With a goal of $2,000--the family was able to raise that in just 29 short days thanks to the kindness of South Jersey and those around the world supporting their cause!
If you would like to continue donated to show support for the family as they run this Sunday, check out their Go-Fund-Me page -- 100% of the money raised on this page will be donated to Bee a Blessing.
