THE STORY:

As many of you know, I honored my lifelong friend, Heidi Garren Everley, in the Chicago Half Marathon in August 2009 after her diagnosis of Lung Cancer earlier that year. I felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment spreading the word about non-smokers and the myths of Lung Cancer. Heidi couldn't make it to Chicago, but she was so excited that I did this alongside our friends Alison & Aaron Becker on her behalf.

Unfortunately, Heidi lost her courageous fight the week of Thanksgiving last Fall. I miss her terribly every single day. Heidi's life was full of love, her heart made of pure gold. She was a dedicated mother of two beautiful children. A dear sister, a loving wife, a first-born daughter, a treasured friend, and a trusted doctor. She knew how to make everyone feel comfortable, and it was evident in her carefully chosen occupation of dentistry. She was an amazing gymnast, STILL holds a record in diving at Topeka High School, and knew how to make Jayhawk fans rise to their feet as a cheerleader at KU. She was also a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority. She had a laugh that was so infectious, it lit up a room. Not to mention she was unbelievably beautiful inside and out.

I vowed to keep sharing the message about non-smokers and lung cancer, and fighting to raise awareness in her memory. I've always wanted to run the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta on July 4. There are 60,000 runners and I'm so excited to take part in this historic race in memory of my beautiful friend and in honor of her two children, Parker & Hayden!

Please help me by donating anything you can afford, no amount is too small, to the American Lung Association of Kansas. By doing so, you help to make the air we breathe cleaner, raise funds for research, and share the message that lung cancer isn't just a smokers disease.

I hope to raise a minimum of $1,036...36 for every year Heidi and I were friends in life!
