Dear Friends of Eve’s Fund,
Yes, that’s me–Eve’s mom–Barbara Crowell Roy.
This summer, I did something I never thought possible…I got off the couch and started running. I did three 5Ks and even came in first in one of them. (Luckily, there weren’t too many participants in my age group!)
Those of you who know me well know that physical exercise isn’t something I’ve ever really loved. Eve was an athlete and at least weekly she would bug me about the need to get fit. I can still hear her saying, “Mom, you need to live a long life to take care of all your grandchildren. I just can’t understand why you don’t want to move.”
With Eve gone, her dad, brother and I have kept her memory alive through Eve’s Fund…promoting hope, wellness and injury prevention for young Native Americans.
Now, just in time for what would have been Eve’s 37th birthday on November 4th, we have started a Running for Eve’s Fund Challenge on Crowdrise. We’re trying to raise $8,000—enough to buy 1,000 bike helmets for kids living in poverty across the Navajo Nation.
Please consider donating (just $8 buys one helmet) and joining our team. Every dollar counts.
