As many of you know, I am a veteran runner of the Los Angeles Marathon. This marathon holds a very special place in my heart. This year I won't be running but instead walking the LA Marathon 5K for a very special family. This walk means a lot to me because it is in honor and memory of a very sweet baby boy. Our dear friends' baby, Maxwell Judah Leviss, passed away most unexpectedly on July 21, 2011, at the age of 9 months. Maxie's sudden death has sent shockwaves through the many lives he touched in his much too short time on earth; it has taught all of us the real meaning of heart-wrenching sadness. You did not have to know him personally to be rocked by his very sad passing.

Remarkably, from this tragic event, hundreds of people have been inspired to contribute money in Maxie's name to plant a forest in Israel, anchoring his sprit to a land his parents love. Not only will Maxie's forest grow into a beautiful living tribute to one of the sweetest babies ever born, but hopefully each tree planted will somehow start to fill the cavernous hole weighing so heavily on Abby and Ted's hearts. Perhaps that hole can eventually be filled with the outpouring of love that offers them both peace and comfort in a time of such unimaginable pain and heartache.

I will be walking the Los Angeles Marathon Big 5K on March 17th representing "Team Maxie" to raise money to plant a forest of trees in his memory in the Carmel region of Israel. Israel is a place that is very special to Maxie's family. It is where his parents first met and got engaged and hoped to one day bring Maxie for his bar mitzvah. The forest that will be planted in his name will continue to grow even if he does not have that opportunity.

It takes only $18 to plant a tree. Plant one tree or ten, and together we can build a majestic forest to keep Maxie's spirit alive forever - a piece of posterity, planted to reforest an area near Haifa in northern Israel that was devastated by fire last winter.

I appreciate your support as we walk beside our dear friends and honor sweet Maxie.

Thank you.

Ann Frederick

I precisely needed to thank you very much again. I'm not certain what I could possibly have achieved without those tricks provided by you about my topic. Certainly was a very distressing condition for me, but spending time with this skilled mode you treated that made me to leap with fulfillment. Extremely thankful for your service and even sincerely hope you know what an amazing job you're getting into instructing some other people with the aid of your website. Most probably you haven't encountered any of us.

Some exercise programs could lead to buying extra products or buying expensive items over shelf. If just like me you reside in someplace cold throughout the winter you recognize about to catch always going as a way to exercise outdoors. This weight reduction mechanism is merely to be played with abbreviated periods.
