BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2013
When it seems like the world is shaking all around you, support from family, friends, and caring strangers gives a sense of stability-- of solid ground. My name is Rebecca Roach, and the motto, "just keep putting one front in front of the other," helps me to calibrate and navigate my way through trying times. I run and I live by this motto because I believe that the rhythm of breathing and of beating hearts is one of the most steady, assuring, and powerful tempos in the world. Thus, I am putting my best foot forward (well, both feet) and running the OKC Memorial Marathon in support of those who lost their lives, their loved ones, and those who helped this city and this nation regain stability and strength after our world was shaken. Please donate and help me in my goal to honor and raise awareness for the sense of balance, peace, hope, and resilience that was born out of tragedy. Your support gives many the reason and ability to keep on keeping on-- all 26.2 miles of the way. Thank you very much!
