Dr. Vrady's Fundraising for the World's Best Dad
On January 28th, 2017, my sisters Molly & Emma, brother-in-law Tyler, and I will be participating in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) of North Texas's Big D Climb in honor of our amazing Dad and all those affected by blood cancers. Dad is currently kicking non-hodgkins Lymphoma's ass. The event entails climbing 70 stories to the top of the Bank of America Tower in Dallas, which is the tallest building in the city.
We will be making the climb as Team "Check Your Oil" and have set a team goal to raise $5,000. How did we come up with that team name? Well, fun fact about dear ol' dad is his knack for finding us running out the door late somewhere only to stop us in our tracks and ask us, "did you check the oil in the car?" It has become a classic dad-ism and never fails to make us smile. Lord knows we'll need some humor to get us to the top, and if it takes longer than we planned we'll just blame it on the fact we had to stop and check the oil.
The goal of the event is to raise $350,000 to support the ongoing efforts of LLS to find a cure for all types of blood cancers, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
As we do our squats and run a few stairs to prepare for this adventure, we would be so grateful for any and all support you may be willing to provide.
If you are in Dallas or want to make the trip to complete the climb as part of our team, please call/email/text me and I can help you sign up! We would love to have a big team climbing!
If you are not able to make the actual climb, but would like to participate as a virtual climber, you can sign up HERE --> https://secure2.convio.net/lls/site/TRR/Events/General/228230552?pg=ptype&fr_id=1060.

We are all so excited to be participating on behalf of our Dad and in support of all those affected by blood cancers. Thank you thank you for reading all the way through this lengthy post. I truly appreciate your support!
