BENEFITING: GREAT LAKES ADAPTIVE SPORTS ASSOC
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
My daughter Letty is an athlete. She works harder than anyone I know to reach her potential in every hour of therapy she gets each week. She inspires our whole family everyday to reach our potential and to never give up. Letty cannot swallow, sit up on her own or run away from me like most 5 year olds would when you call out to them. She is not typical, however she is extraordinary. She is bold and she is very smart and extremely funny.
You won't be able to hear her cheering for me when I stop at mile 12 to take a picture with her and drip sweat all over her wheelchair, but I bet she will give me 2 thumbs up and then point towards mile 13.
I want to run my first marathon in 2013 in support of GLASA and the great services they provide for individuals like my daughter who strive to jump higher and go faster and just continue being exceptional . And I'll want to run in ten more if I could serve as an inspiration for Letty to work even harder. Consider it payback.
