THE STORY:

This project is more than reaching out to Leighan; it's about connecting with friends, family, and loved ones in a way that will make an imprint on our hearts.
Leighan is my dear friend and neighbor. We met 6 years ago while we were both in our front yards gardening. Through the years we have grown to be more than neighbors, more like family. The symptoms of secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis have slowly taken away from her favorite hobby, gardening. Her yard has an old silver maple tree stump that is the size of a small car. The tree's old roots have left the ground uneven, which makes walking on it with crutches near impossible. To make her yard more user friendly/wheelchair accessible, a complete overhaul is necessary. Removal of the stump and one quaking aspen, as well as leveling the yard, will give us the foundation to do so.
I love to run and have been increasing my distances over the past year. It occurred to me that I wanted to run for a purpose, other than my own gratification. Leighan was the first person I thought of--after all, my daughter asked if she could call her Grandma. This is how close we have become.
Therefore, I have decided to run the IMTUF 100-mile trail race in McCall, Idaho, in September 2015. My hope is to raise the $15,000 to get Leighan back in her yard and to bring others together. Hopefully on this year-long journey, others will get the desire to reach out and help someone in need, in turn, starting a chain of relentless hearts with a passion to help others.
