THE STORY:

This year we lost the leader of our family, John T. Childers Sr. This man was important to many. To me he was my grandfather, a mentor, a friend, and a hero. He kicked some ass over in Europe circa 1942. He spent his career traveling the world with the US Air Force and ended his military career holding the rank of Chief Master Sergeant. He was tough, but kind. Meticulous, but forgiving. As generous as a man could be. If you were in his presence, you became a part of his family. This past April he came to the end of his journey at 91 years old. I was fortunate enough to spend a few years with him during my time in Georgia. During this time I had a front row seat to watch as his thoughts became more forgetful, his speech slipped, and daily tasks became more frustrating for him. I am dedicating my run in his name and will be raising funds for the Alzheimer's Foundation to continue their goal of ending this disease. He had a continuous commitment to help those who needed it. In his spirit, I would like to pay that forward. It's easy, you donate, and I put myself through 10+ miles of hell for a noble cause. Thanks for reading and if you could spare a few pennies it would mean the world to me! -Dan Childers
