THE STORY:

We are a little under a month away from the big race day!

Today, during my training, I completed 11 miles. This is the first time in my life I've ever run a distance this far straight through. I am so proud of how far each of my sisters and I have come to be able to complete this race together. I am getting so excited to be running across the finish line at the end of our 13.1 miles.

At the same time today during my run, I was humbled by the fact that I am able to run and train appropriately while so many people are battling cancer. I was quickly reminded how my crazy sisters convinced me to complete this run. Every step I take, and every dollar I raise, is truly for those I love and for those I don't even know, but are fighting for their lives against cancer.

Over the past couple years, some very near and dear to our hearts have struggled through, fought, beat and others still battle with cancer. Cousin Jill had to endure a life changing surgery due to breast cancer, but fortunately has been cancer free since. Grammy, even at a ripe 80 some years old, overcame numerous days of chemotherapy, blood draws, tests, and trips to the doctor to overcome Stage 3 Lymphoma. Still to this day the doctors say her scans are as though she never even had cancer! And most currently, our cousin Dan who is still battling Ocular Melanoma, and as patiently as possible going through test after test to determine what his next step in fighting will be. For these reasons, and the million of other stories of individuals fighting cancer, we choose the American Cancer Society as the recipient of our fundraising efforts for this running endeavor. Please help 3B's4acure to meet our fundraising goals to better the lives of those fighting cancer!
