Charity Miles

Carri Collins / February 13, 2020

I usually do not share on here, I usually text Robin Blake’s Aunt who is a dear friend. But today I received a notification and I thought I would share.

I am a nurse here in San Diego and I deal with sick people and kiddos every day. I work I at an Urgent Care so I walk anywhere from 10,000-20,000 steps a day. About a year ago I was looking for something to do in Blake’s honor. I always pay it forward but I felt like finding something that would be more. So I found this app on my phone called Charity Miles. You open it when you exercise and choose a charity and then people sponsor you and you get money for each mile. So I thought this would be a good way to carry Blake and his mission with me at work. I turn it on once I’m at work and finish it at end of my shift. I alway say thank you Blake when my fit bit signals I’ve reached the 10,000 step mark for the day, Brings a smile. I looked for charities that would honor Blake. Randy’s is not on there but St Judes is.

So today I got a message from Charity Miles showing my miles walked and money raised, I have walked 289.96 miles in Blake’s Honor and Raised $6,622 for St Judes Children’s Hospital. This is such an easy way to give back and makes a huge difference. Thank you to Blake and his amazing family for being with me and on my mind every day. Doing good deeds and showing compassion every day is my life, it’s why I became a nurse. But Blake helps remind me everyday why again and again. Luv to all
