In my journey of running with Ainsley's Angels, I have completed in every distance, from 5k to 50k. I have decided to set my sights on a new milestone. On April 26, 2014, I will participate in the Virginia 24 Hour Run for Cancer event and have a goal of FIFTY miles! FIFTY is the magic number for this event, which will take place in Hampton, Virginia, and I will be running for multiple reasons.
Cancer has been an unfortunate part of my life since birth, as my mother had thyroid cancer when she was pregnant with me. I have seen many friends and family members, to include my father, mother, and grandparents, experience the horrible effects of cancer. I am tired of cancer being apart of my life. As such, I will put my legs to the test and run to raise money to eliminate cancer. Fifty percent of all tax-deductible money raised on this page will go directly to the American Cancer Society.
As many of you know, another part of my life is running for and with Ainsley's Angels. I am not tired of this amazing organization being a part of my life, so I have decided to have the other fifty percent of all tax-deductible money go directly to help them continue their mission of 'Rolling with the Wind"!

Fifty is the magic number for this event...50 miles and 50 percent to these awesome organizations!
All local friends and family please come out in April to support my efforts. I even invite you to run or jog a lap with me!
Both charities are great causes and this event will be a win-win for everyone.
