BENEFITING: JAMIE KIRK HAHN FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015

Laura White

THE STORY:

On November 1, 2015 I will be running my first full marathon. This race holds a special significance in being my first full marathon as well as taking place in the beloved city of a dear friend: the City of Oaks Marathon in Raleigh, North Carolina. I am not a particularly fast runner, but I run. I run for my health, my children, and for those who cannot.

In November, I will run 26.2 miles for Jamie and those who continue to do goodwill in her honor. I am dedicating this race to my childhood friend, Jamie Kirk Hahn and her family. She was taken from us too soon in April of 2013 and in her honor, I am asking friends, family and anyone who would like to help me in raising funds towards the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation, established in her honor. Jamie was an incredible, selfless woman who believed in the importance of giving back to the community and the Foundation does this through their efforts to empower and engage members of the community and community-based organizations to give back to the community, state and the world.

I was a childhood friend of Jamie's growing up. Her mother taught with my grandmother in Orangeburg, South Carolina, where I visited from Maryland. I spent many summers and holidays visiting with Jamie. We spent our days singing and dancing along with the Annie soundtrack, playing store and riding down the hill in her red wagon at the yellow house she grew up in. Jamie always had a smile on her face and a giving spirit; she was a motivated and loving individual, who always encouraged others and even in death, continues to inspire. I cannot thank Jamie enough for her friendship and goodwill and am blessed to have known her.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” The Lorax
