BENEFITING: ALABAMA CHILDRENS HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
A little over two years ago, I was inspired to run my first marathon by a remarkable young man who was fighting Stage 4 Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Carson Sumpter touched so many people in his all-too-short life, including mine in a profound way.
The many days Carson spent at Childrens' Hospital were a challenge for him, and he wanted a legacy that would help to provide resources for other teens and adolescents fighting similar battles at the hospital.
