BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: LLS Charity Runners
EVENT DATE: May 05, 2013
I am running this race to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and in memory of my former colleague and friend, Maya Jackson Randall. Maya passed away on February 26, 2013 after a hard-fought battle with a rare form of leukemia. Maya worked with me while we were at Dow Jones in Washington, D.C. She trained me on the U.S. Treasury beat. She was a joy to work with and a beautiful person, both inside and out. She was a devoted wife and mother. A fine reporter. And a lovely friend. She was only 33 when she passed away. I hope the money we raise from this event can help save lives so people like Maya can live to see their children grow up and not be taken away from us like she was.
