Elora Geier Holiday Benefit Auction
I have mentioned Elora Geier here before but please allow me to reiterate.
One of the race competitors in the Drake Well Marathon, Dan Geier, had a simple request when I asked him what he wanted to be listed as: "Elora's Dad". I assumed he was simply a proud father. I was wrong.
In April 2006, Elora, Dan's daughter, lost her life after battling with Leukemia. To honor her life, Dan set up, Elorapalooza, a 5K Run/Walk on September 23, 2007. Raising funds in memory of Elora, the race distance was a favorite of Elora's who, in spite of always finishing long after the other runners crossed the finish line enjoyed the 5k.
Well the race was a large success and now Dan and his family are throwing a Holiday Benefit auction to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Elora’s HOPE Foundation. To learn more about this event and how you can be a part, just click above or email Dan and Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much for reading!
