Shane Morris' Fundraiser:

My dear brother in law Thomas Hayes Abbott was diagnosed with stage 4 non small cell lung caner 2 years ago. He was 45 years young, fit, past full ride scholarship college athlete and the best son, brother, husband, uncle and brother in law any one could ever have dreamed. Tommy battled his disease for 2 years but could not overcome. He passed on January 17th, 2017. He fought till the bitter end, always keeping a positive attitude, always happy, never complained. Because of his fighting spirit and positive outlook, none of us saw it coming. I had planned this run for January as an act of solidarity with the fight we was in. I wanted to put myself in the fight with him and try and feel what he was feeling. His time came and I had to re-organize. Since his passing we have had two other Charleston runners inflicted with cancer. Bryan Johnson and Bratton Fennell. These are two Charleston running legends, front of the packers who one would never suspect could be blindsided by this terrible disease. I loved Tommy dearly and I have always been awed by Brian and Bratton. This run is in tribute to them and anyone else who is undergoing a battle with cancer. I am doing this for you, to show you people care what you are going through and maybe somehow to take some of you your pain away, even for a day. I am going to run 100 miles on the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge on May 27th, 2017. This is an out and back of 5 miles so I will complete 20 laps. This run will be verified by the FKT (fastest known time) organization so it will be the first time someone has run 100 miles on the ARB and all in honor of those battling cancer. God bless those fighting and suffering and their families. This is truly my honor to complete. E. Shane Morris
