THE STORY:

I'm Michael's sister. I know marathon training can be tough, and the actual marathon can be even harder. What's not hard, however, is finding the reason to run. With Michael to look up to, it's not hard to find a reason to keep going

Michael never gave  up. Michael knew real challenge and real struggle, and he did it all with a smile on his face and others on his mind. His bravery, courage, and selflessness are what motivate me each day. And what will motivate me for ANOTHER 26.2 miles.

Last year, at mile 17, when I thought my legs would fall off and I would probably collapse right there, the Friends4Michael tent showed up on the horizon. It's like Michael Johnny knew I needed him right then. And I kept going, and I finished.

In some small way, I know how it feels to be inspired to keep fighting and trying, and how important the Friends4Michael foundation can be when giving someone the strength to go on. And that was just for a few measly miles! I can't even imagine the faith, and the hope, that comes from the support and love that the Friends4Michael Foundation gives to each of the families who receive our support. Please help me continue to support the outreach and support efforts of the Friends4Michael Foundation.

Your donation could be the "support tent on the horizon" for the family and child fighting for their life against a brain tumor.
