THE STORY:

As most of you may know I lost my sister Kate in September 2013. She was a very special young woman. Despite her multiple disabilities, she always was able to bring those around her together. Without speaking, she would draw those around her in and her energy was contagious (be it good or bad),. There is not a day that goes by where I don't think about her, I miss her every day. June 9 would have been her 24th birthday. The Runner's world Heartbreak Hill Half is the June 8, 2014, which as it so happens would her birthday weekend. This will be my third half marathon in the last 8 months and I want to do it well, knowing its in Kate's honor.

Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a special needs camp in Center Moriches, NY. They take great care of the special needs children and young adults that spend time there. Kate loved attending weekend respite and summer camp sessions for years. It was a home away from home, also giving my parents a break from time to time without anxiety. She was truly loved there and it was one of the few places that we would never have to worry about Kate's sometimes very medically involved needs being met properly. The camp gives parents of special needs children a place to go with loving staff, a safe enviroment and fun. I would like to run and have all the proceeds go to keeping such an amazing camp running smoothly so many others can experience their warmth.
