In the spring of 2015 Graham, a sweet, energetic boy, was diagnosed with Leukemia. For the last year he has been fighting this terrible disease with immeasurable strength. With the love, support, and assistance of his family, friends, and the incredible nurses and doctors at Dell Children's hospital in Austin, TX, Graham has taken this disease head on!
Graham and his sister attend the same school as my daughters, and are part of a family who is beloved by all who meet them. They are a strong, generous family who do so much for so many and serve as an inspiration to the entire school community. Graham's spirit and his family's tenacity have inspired me to do more for children like Graham; children who fight an invisible villain day in and day out with the courage and fortitude of a super-hero. Children who know that though the road they travel may be too much for most people, they will not only take that road with fight in each step, but they will conquer that road.
With that fight and endurance in mind and heart, I signed up for 300 Days of Run, which is a challenge to run at least 300 days in 2016 and raise money for a charity of the runner’s choosing. Partnering with Strava (a running Ap) and Crowdrise (a fundraising website), 300 Days of Run challenges individuals to run at least 300 days in 2016 and raise money while doing so. My goal is to run at least 300 days in 2016 and raise money for a clinic in Austin that supports Graham and other children like him, Dell Children’s Blood & Cancer Center.
Please consider supporting me in raising money for this great cause and donate to my 300 Days of Run challenge for Dell Children's Blood and Cancer Center!
