BENEFITING: CELEBRATE LIFE HALF MARATHON
ORGANIZER: CELEBRATE LIFE HALF MARATHON
Its that time of year again, as my closest friends know, this race has become a bit of a tradition, in 2013 I attempted to walk in memory of Billy Simon who left us just a few days before the race in March of 2013 after a long battle with Brain Cancer and in honor of Jazmine Fuentes who was battling stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer I was devastated I was unable to finish but talking with Jazmine after she assured me that just having the courage to start was enough, and Billy would have been proud, it gave me the will to keep moving forward. I ran in 2014, In memory of both Billy and Jazmine. We unfortunately lost her Thanksgiving day in 2013. I plan to run every year in remembrance of these two people who both changed my life in different ways. I will honor them to the best of my abilities and raise money in their honor so that other people battling this terrible disease can have some help along the way. Find it in your heart this holiday season (i know money may be tight for many of us) to donate any amount you can, every penny helps!
