Warrior Paint Campaign

Marathon Monday is almost here!!  As you know Phil Madera will be running in honor of our little Wylder James who battled Niemann Pick A disease.  This is a beautiful reminder the GOODNESS in the World that Wylder taught us is out there everyday.  And this is continuing to help bring our Rare Disease community together … uniting more and more to raise awareness to make a difference for kiddos like yours battling rare genetic disease.


To show the team our love and support for there efforts, and to remind Phil our Warrior Wylder James will be with him in spirit every step of the way … we have come up with a Warrior Paint Campaign. The goal is to receive 1,000 photos of YOU in your WARRIOR paint by next Monday!!!

It’s simple.  Dabble a bit of Warrior Paint (aka. face paint, or sunscreen) onto your cheeks and the cheeks of those you love and send them our way.  Send to me at shannon@wyldernation.org or post to the WN FB Page at https://www.facebook.com/Wylderjames  As the photos start to come in, I am going to create a “PAGE”” on Wylder’s website (HERE) where I will archive all the photos we receive of you loveies in your paint.

After sending Phil a few photos of Wylder months back he selected Wylder’s famous Warrior Paint photo to wear over his heart on this very special upcoming Marathon Monday.  I will be on the sidelines with my mom, some genzyme friends, Phil’s family, and many of you who are coming out to show your support.  We will be draped on our Wylder Nation gear with our painted faces for a day of cheering!


Let us come together and paint the town WARRIOR style!  Over the next week please get together with your friends, family, co-workers, church groups, neighborhood kids  and show Phil and the team some LOVE …. WARRIOR Style. Get together, have some laughs, paint those beautiful faces and show your support for them and the WARRIORS in your lives.   We are starting the campaign off right now with Wylder’s dog Maddie ….

tee hee hee

The goal is 1,000 pictures in one week!   Please share, share, share that your care. Include pictures of YOUR rare disease Warrior’s and those who love them most.  May we all be reminded how many very special Warriors there are battling rare disease and how loved they all are.  Please share this post and this campaign and your picts on facebook, twitter, instagram all week.  Let us all come together… reminding Phil and the team  the strength of our Warrior Wylder James and the support system around them and bring on the photos!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who donated and continues to donate to Phil and his amazing cause for NORD (HERE) and all of you that are going to send Warrior paint photos are way.

The team will most certainly feel our strength, love and support through our photos to him and  I know you, our sweet Wylder, will be smiling down on us when you see these photos coming in and Phil on his run thinking of YOU.  Wylder we know all things are possible because of you.  You are loved little one, so loved!  See you in our dreams Warrior.  xoxo
