I am running the Little Rock Marathon on March 4, 2012 in honor of my friend Grace.
Grace has a rare genetic disorder which caused, at one point, up to 30 “drop” seizures an hour. Of course, this has significantly impacted her learning and overall development. Grace was recently hospitalized for a drug reaction to seizure medication. She became lovingly known throughout the hospital as their “Warrior Princess” because of her beautiful smile and warrior spirit. In her short 5 years of life, she has been through more than most will ever have to endure. Through her sheer determination for life and happiness, Grace has inspired me to “Access my Inner Warrior!”
Grace has been attending Access Schools in Little Rock, AR for school and therapy - her progress has been tremendous. Access Schools has such an amazing team of people that teach the “association” method with which Grace successfully responds. Those of us running on Grace’s team are raising money for this wonderful school. Below is a link about some of Grace’s early accomplishments and the school:

Our team goal is to raise $10,000 for Grace’s school. The race is 26.2 miles - Will you help me Access my Inner Warrior? Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Please make checks payable to “Access Schools”. Access Schools is a 501c3 and you will receive a tax deduction for your donation. Thanks in advance for helping us achieve our goals.
