Running for Ben
Organized by: Sara Clouse
EVENT DATE May 04, 2014
Our nephew Ben was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma after a routine tonsillectomy follow-up. Ben was the ring bearer at our wedding and he is the oldest of Christy’s three children.
Ben’s currently undergoing treatment at St. Jude Children’s hospital in Memphis. While this is extremely rare to find in children, it does have a 90% cure rate. Ben is undergoing chemotherapy, and the outlook is extremely positive. He is in great hands at St. Jude, but the Halbig family has incurred multiple expenses, mostly related to uprooting the family to Memphis.
My mom and I signed up for a half marathon / 10k in May, and we wanted to dedicate this race to Ben. We are asking our close friends and family to help us raise money for Ben and the Halbig family. Thank you so much for your consideration and support!
