Hey y’all my name is Chaz Rymer and I am from Bountiful, UT. I LOVE RUNNING as much as I love my beautiful wife. It all started running cross country and track in high school and it went all the way to running a marathon and training/running triathlons. That rush of excitement I get at the starting line when everyone is waiting for the gun to go off is unforgettable. I have been hooked on running ever since! For me the goals that are involved with running are instrumental to life. That could be that you don’t stop till you reach the top off the hill, or you are pushing yourself to make a certain time that you have set. The great thing about running is that you are never running alone; there are always people around you to help you make your goals. These things can be applied to this great cause that we are running for.
My Grandma got diagnosed with colon cancer when I was returning home from my church’s religious tour. It then metastasized to her lungs, and liver, before she started her radiation treatment. At first for me it didn’t really click, that cancer could mean that she would pass away. It just meant that she had to go through treatment and that she would get better. Even with all the support of a loving family, the radiation therapy wasn’t helping because the cancer was just too much. She ended up stopping the therapy and passing away a couple of weeks later.
That event in my life really shaped how I view my life and the lives of people around me. I want to do my best to make a difference in the world of battling cancer. I have made the decision to become a radiation therapist and help people like my Grandma.
I am excited to run for this cause, LETS DO THIS.
