Sosha Lewis' Fundraiser:

Because I Can

On December 22, 2012 some dear family friends, the Bachos, were in a devastating car accident in Newnan, GA. The van that the five members of the Bacho family, Natalie, Stephen, Hannah, Abby, and Charlotte, and Natalie's dad, Butch were travelling in was broadsided as they were going to look at Christmas decorations.

The lovely, sweet and energetic Abby did not make it. She died on Christmas day, and her family made the loving decision to donate her organs; giving others the gift of life.

Stephen sustained life threatening injuries, but, fortunately, is on the road to recovery. It will be a long, slow road, but he has the faith, determination, and grit to make it.

I will be running the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon on April 7, 2013. Running a marathon has been a long-standing goal. However, it has taken on more meaning since the passing of sweet Abby. I know that there are so many that no longer have the opportunity to fullfil their goals. Therefore, I am running it for me, for Stephen, for Abby, and for so many countless others - because I can.

It may not be fast and it may not be pretty, but I will cross the finish - because I can.

Furthermore, I want to use this as an opportunity to raise money for the Bacho family. They are an inspiration to me, and they give me motivation during those long, lonely miles.
