Running for Jill's Wish

Alyssa O'Brien


My name is Alyssa. I am 23 years old and walk with a walker. When my friend told me the color run was coming to Montreal and asked me if I want to run I first thought " I can't!". Then I thought of my friend Jill Conley. Jill is 36 years old and a breast cancer survivor who is now battling incurable bone cancer. Ever since her diagnosis Jill has been on a mission to help others battling cancer and teaching women everywhere to feel beautiful no matter what their situation. Jill started Jill's Wish an organization thats mission is to help families minimize their financial struggles while going through cancer. Jill is the most selfless and beautiful person I know and she has made me believe that anything is possible so I want to do the color run in her honour. I would love it if you would sponsor me and all the proceeds will go to Jill's Wish! Let's help make this amazing woman's wish come true.
