2009 was the inaugural Jazz Half Marathon which raises money to support the Cancer Program at Children's Hospital of New Orleans. I had the pleasure of competing every year until losing my leg in an accident in 2014. Thanks ro the generosity of Amputee Blade Runners, I have been able to resume running, with my ultimate goal being to compete, once again, in the Jazz Half Marathon on October 28. Please find it in your hearts to support me, and more importantly, the children of the Gulf South in their fight against cancer. God bless you, and God bless the children!
