On May 19, 2012, friends and family of Jason Keatseangsilp will run the Brooklyn Half Marathon to raise money for the Southwest Spinal Cord Injury Fund of HelpHOPELive. HelpHOPELive is a nonprofit that helps patients and families facing transplantation or catastrophic injury. Please join me in supporting this worthy cause.
Jason is a high school senior and one of the greatest kids you’ll ever meet – he loves tennis, making Youtube videos, and truly lights up any room with his gigantic smile. In November, Jason fell over 30 ft and suffered a severe spinal cord injury. After spending 3 weeks at the University of Arizona Medical Center and 9 weeks at the Craig Hospital in Colorado, Jason is back in Tucson and learning to adjust to his new life. He is looking forward to graduating in May.
I will be running in the half-marathon and would greatly appreciate your support. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made online by clicking the “Donate” button at the top of the page or by check.
Thank you for your participating in this great cause!
The Brooklyn Half Marathon will be held on Saturday, May 19 in Prospect Park, Brooklyn at 7am.

Hi Jason, I just talked to your mom this morning when she called us. Your parents are special to us because they were our friends and mentors while we were stationed their in the Air Force. I want you to know we are praying for you to press on in hope as God tells us to in Jeremiah 29:11. Philippians 4:13 tells us we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. We pray that you will walk again, play tennis again, but most of all find a way to help others through the many gifts you still have. Yours in Christ's Love,
