David (and Jackson) Greenwood

UPDATE: 9/5/19. Come join us at Brian Boru in Severna Park, M on 9.21.19. Saturday night, at a GREAT Irish Bar, supporting kids with cancer. This is a must do. Kid friendly, too. Get a three course meal for $25, $10 goes to fighting cancer. Come join us, or call in a donation to the bar; they will announce it to the crowd!


Jackson I are personally trying to raise $1,500. This is almost double what we pulled down last year, most of which may or may not have been accidental donations by people trying to donate to Jenn and Allie. It all goes to help the kids, no matter which runner you donate under...but just remember Jackson and I really like winning, too.

Hands down this is a great cause. It goes to helping kids like Allie, and the families that go through these experiences. Visiting a place like Johns Hopkins Children's Center and any of its pediatric specialty centers is simply eye opening. Families fly from around the country to bring their kids to Hopkins with the trust, faith and hope that the staff will do what they do best; help kids. Seeing kids fight cancer is heartbreaking but it's also inspiring. This team supports these amazing kids and their brave families.

I know there are many great causes to support. Mainstream causes like poverty, basic human rights, homelessness, environmental and animal protection, etc. And of course there are the many causes we support locally already. So please don't feel obligated to donate because we all have passions in life.

But, if you live nearby, DO feel obligated to stop by and show support. And to be totally honest, it's actually Jackson who wants to give YOU (yes, YOU!) a unique opportunity to donate because donating is scientifically proven to make people happier, and because he (Jackson) thinks you are just a great person.

The hospital would benefit from any method of support, which we discuss on the team's main page. So give money or don't, either way you should absolutely show up on race day and hang out with our team and our Team Captain, Allie. Plus, the Hopkins Children Center does RACE day right.

1. If you sign up to run, you don't pay for the race, you just need to fundraise money. 5K, 10K, Marathon, or all THREE events in one day (yes that is an option)
2. You get free beer tickets to use at the beer tent
3. You get free t-shirts (last year we got an amazing Chickenpalooza running shirt; a great Hopkins running shirt, a Baltimore running shirt and a bright pink Team Allie's Cat shirt)
4. Hopkins tent has free beer and mimosas. NOTE: The event coordinator will let adults drink before the race. I can't recommended this as a good idea...but it's for charity
5. There is food (bagels, pizza, etc)
6. Stroller parking, gear drop off, free beer, etc
7. Team Founder, Allison and her Chief of Staff (Emma) will be there, signing unicorn pictures.

If you're reading my post, then somehow you're connected to my family and my daughter, even if by a few degrees of separation. So we invite you to come join us on race day and meet Allie and other kids and families that navigated this scary experience.
