THE STORY:

The Roger Maris Cancer Center holds a very special place in my heart as many of my family members, friends and even a former student have received cancer treatments there. For several years, I ran this race in memory of many family members who lost their battles with cancer while supporting my mom and my cousins, Karla and Kris, who were putting up the toughest fights possible.  Since the last time I was able to run this race, my family has unfortunately lost two of these amazing women to a devastating disease - my mom in December 2015 and my cousin Karla in October 2016.  Although these strong, courageous women are no longer with us here, we cannot forget the incredible care they received at Roger Maris.  The doctors, nurses and volunteers always went out of their way to make a very difficult experience as pleasant as possible.  My hope is that I can help support the amazing things that happen at Roger Maris so that other families can experience the phenomenal care that my family did.
