April 1, 2012 -Parents, Caregivers and Friends Unite to Raise Funds for Sanfilippo Syndrome by becoming healthy.
Starting April 1, 2012 we are doing (2)- 8 week missions. “Mission Slimpossible”. Many of the parents of MPS children have realized that their own weight and health are becoming an issue as we eat more, and not always the best choices mainly because of the lifestyles we lead with always caring for our children and not ourselves. Many times we find ourselves eating out of comfort during the difficult times our children have. So a mom suggested we change our lifestyle and eating habits and become healthier so we can care for our children more efficiently and be here for them and not ill ourselves. As a result some are donating a dollar per pound of weight loss they achieve to Team Sanfilippo, others are donating $50 for each pants size they go down during the 8 weeks. We at Team Sanfilippo Challenge you to get a group together at work, church, your social groups, your family members or even online with Facebook friends as some of us have done. Won’t you join us in getting your own health in better shape as well, while donating to a good cause to help find a cure for our kids as your motivation? We challenge you to join us!! Summer is just around the bend and being in shape means more endurance and enjoyment of the nice outdoor activities when the weather is good! Overall a happier you!!
“When one approach is not working to reach the desired goal, that’s not a reason to abandon the goal. Instead, it is time to devise another approach.”——Ralph Marston
We can reverse years of damage to our bodies by deciding to raise our standards for ourselves, then living differently. Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them.
