Family and friends of David McCauley are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with his spinal cord injury. David lives in Brooklyn, NY and was treated at Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia. David continues to participate in physical therapy on a part-time basis.
David has chosen to fundraise with HelpHOPELive in part because HelpHOPELive assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign:

Hi David, I''m Mike Cleary. My son is Tim Cleary. I ran marathons for 30 years. I can''t now so I guess I''m letting Jensen and Mears run ''em for me, in my dreams. I''m supporting Jensen half marathon at Indiana with a contribution, but, if Mears runs it also, it would be hard not too provide a matching contribution. Additionally, if either of them should grow two and complete, not the half, but the whole marathon, running, walking or crawling, I''ll double my original contribution. David, my best to you and your family, I know there are physical limitations imposed by circumstance but I would suspect as one of the friends of the amazing group of people my son counts as such you know that the mind is the key. I will add my mind to the task now as well with my good thoughts for you and yours.

You obviously have a lot of great people on your team. I hope our paths cross one day. Keep up the good work!
