Many of you know that last year I ran my first half marathon, the Disney Princess. While last year's race was to prove to myself that I could do it, this year I am running to honor the memory of a dear friend's baby girl.
My friend, Aran and her husband Patrick did everything in their power to give their daughter, Brianna Marie, a chance at survival after she was diagnosed with fetal hydrops. Brianna lived her entire life on March 16, 2012. In the hope that they can spare other expectant parents the heartbreak they endured, Aran and Patrick have set up the Brianna Marie Foundation to raise money for research into the causes of and treatments for fetal hydrops. What better way to remember Princess Brianna than by running the Princess Half Marathon?
Please consider donating. It would mean the world to a mother's heart.

Aran and some family and friends will be running the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon on February 24th in honor of Brianna. They will be all dressed in pink tutus and baby Brianna will be on their minds every step they take.
