EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2012
A couple months ago, my sister and mom ran in a marathon in California to raise money for my Great Uncle Jim. He is currently battling lung cancer and like most Americans, the treatments are just too expensive for him.
Then, on July 24th of this year, my family had another terrible tragedy occur. My mother, sister, father and our two dogs all passed away on a terrible plane crash on their way to Florida for my sisters internship before starting her Sophomore year at the University of Chicago.
This year, I plan to run in the Illinois Marathon in April in honor of them all and I would love to have your help. It means a lot to me and to my family during this truly awful time. My parents, sister, and Uncle Jim are all amazing, brave, and kind individuals and this could not be a better cause! Thank you.
