This just in from GoFundMe:
"Yesterday afternoon in Boston, MA, Lake Braddock Junior Kate Murphy did the unthinkable! Running in the prestigious Adidas Dream Mile, Kate ran a CRAZY 7-second personal best in the 1,500M, winning the race in 4:07.21, beating the US Olympic qualifying standard of 4:09.50, and running faster than EVERY competitor in the PROFESSIONAL 1,500M race that followed hers.
THIS PAGE IS AN URGENT CALL TO ALL FRIENDS, FAMILY, TEAMMATES, FELLOW COMPETITORS, ETC. to help get Kate's Coach and Trainer to Eugene to be with Kate at the BIGGEST MEET of her young career: THE US OLYMPIC TRIALS!!
100% of your donations will go to FUND the cost of Airfare, Lodging, Admission, Transportation for Kate's Support team of LAKE BRADDOCK COACH MICHAEL MANGAN and PETER SHERRY (Herndon HS Coach and Kate's personal Massage Therapist). There is NO funding to bring Coaches, Trainers and Family to the Trials, so WE NEED to take care of our own!
THANKS in advance for your support. The Trials are just THREE short weeks away! Please JOIN TEAM KATE!!
ANY QUESTIONS? reply and I will answer! (gofundme won't let me post my phone #).
