THE STORY:

Robert Parks Johnson wrote -

On March 17, 2012, I'm racing in the Lexington Shamrock Shuffle 3K to raise money for Actors' Guild of Lexington

In April 2010, I was diagnosed with throat cancer. (If you look closely, you can see the scar from my surgery behind my right ear.) During my treatment and recovery, three things kept me fighting for my life. I wanted to grow old with Mrs P. I wanted to run. And I dreamed of acting again.

When my insurance stopped paying for my medicine, nearly every company in the Lexington theatre community rallied around me. They held benefits and raised money to help us get through those difficult days. And the very first to pitch in was the company that brought us to Kentucky in the first place: Actors' Guild of Lexington.

After the doctors told me i was cancer-free, I got the chance to play again, in AGL's 2011 production of Glengarry Glen Ross. As I sat in the auditorium watching young people climbing ladders, painting scenery, mopping floors, doing the thousand chores that it takes to make theatre happen, I realized I was watching the next generation of dreamers. They were continuing the work that started before I arrived here. Work that can only continue with the support of lovers of compellintg theatre like you and me.

I hope you'll join Team Pennsy to help this great orgainization. Make a contribution, or better yet, join the team, raise some money, and run the 1.8 miles with us. Together, we can help build a future we can pass on to the next generation of dreamers.
