BENEFITING: ALEXS LEMONADE STAND FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2011
In 2007 my father passed away from cancer. Since that day I have made it my own personal mission to help fight the fight against cancer through my running. I have been a Registered Nurse for 13 years and in my career I have worked with children afflicted with various forms of cancer. They have taught me some of the greatest life lessons. Staying positive and always smiling being the two most important lessons. On October the 16th, 2011 I am running the inaugural women's 1/2 here in North Carolina. The Ramblin' Rose Women's 1/2 in Durham, NC. This one I am running for Alex's Lemonade Stand. I am helping a little girls dream live on!! As a mom of two I can think of no better cause. I know this is one my father would be proud of me running for. So help me to keep Alex's dream alive!! She was only 4-years-old when she came up with her charity and it still lives on today. Also for my run I will be making a special t-shirt with the names of all those who donate on it. You will all be running with me that day, as you all helped me to fight the fight against cancer. Thanks!!
