Hey guys! I am very passionate about kids with special needs and disabilities of all kinds. My running partner and one of my best friends led me to HOPE4MINDS fundraiser because it combined helping out these families and also running! How fun!
I'm running the austin half marathon in honor of Mateo whose life was drastically changed when he was 2 years old.
In 2015 he suffered a nonfatal drowning during a family gathering and now has a severe anoxic brain injury. He is still fighting to walk, talk, and eat orally. His family is doing everything they can to help him recover!
His fight to recover motivates and inspires me!
