2018 Race For Hope - DC


Friends, Family, and Colleagues~

Well, it is that time of year again where I ask you all to look under the couch cushions for that extra spare change to support the Race for Hope – DC! Due to your awesome support last year, TheGrayMatters team raised nearly ~$15.1k dollars in 2017 to support finding a cure for brain tumors/cancer. Our two year total exceeds ~$37k. Good job everybody, and a very sincere thank you from the Meadors. Let's keep it up in 2018!

The update...
The past year has flown by, and the Meadors celebrated many exciting adventures in 2017. These adventures include multiple trips to Williamsburg over the summer, vacationing at Disney World, taking another Disney cruise, and spending quality time with friends and family.

Additionally, we hit the 3-yr cancer diagnosis anniversary in early February. Up to this point, we have been blessed with continued good news, and check-ups.

Once you are in the “Cancer Club,” regardless of the form, you know folks who have lost their fight, or who have loved ones who have lost their battles. Sadly, this year was no different. We met new folks who were diagnosed, and we knew those who lost friends or family members. It is the sad reality.

The ask...
Please consider supporting this worthwhile event. Your dollar could be the one that will provide me, and thousands of others, the chance to grow old with our spouses and watch our children grow up to adulthood.

I have been a General Electric employee for almost 15 years, and GE has been a tremendous source of support during this difficult time in our lives. The GE Foundation will match any GE employee contribution greater than $25, dollar-for-dollar, so why not double your generous gift?! Please contact me at daniel.meador@ge.com if you need simple instructions on how to match your contribution. If you are not a GE employee, you can search this site search by clicking the "Donate" tab at the top of the page, to see if YOUR company has a matching gift program.

If you are interested in joining our team, TheGrayMatters, awesome, the more the merrier. Simply click the "JOIN team" tab to the right to get started!

If you cannot participate as a runner/walker, but want to do something to help, please consider donating to our team by clicking the "DONATE to team" tab to the right. There is no pressure to donate a specific amount; every dollar helps. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.

The Meadors are as happy and hopeful as we can be, but there is more work that needs to be done so that I, and others, can celebrate many, many more years with my family and friends.

A sincere thank you to ALL of you that have helped us get to this point, and for helping us find a cure for brain cancer/tumors!

Very respectfully,

Dan, Page and Leighton Meador (The M3ador)
