I am so excited for the opportunity to run as a Project Purple Pioneer! On October 24th, I will be running my second half marathon, down the cape. And I will be running it in purple from head to toe! All to honor my amazing Grandmother and for every other person who is, unfortunately, affected by Pancreatic Cancer.
I watched my grandmothers fight from start to finish, and I can only dream about being as strong of a person as she was. Her strength, both physically and emotionally, were admirable. Although I (thankfully) can't actually walk in her shoes and know what she felt, I do have the opportunity to be strong enough to push myself through those long runs and run this Half Marathon to the best of my abilities.
Pancreatic Cancer is horrific. Anything I can do to help find a cure, as little as it may be, I intend to do it. So at this point, all I can do is run. And run I will (try at least-haha!)
Thanks for taking the time to read up on this amazing opportunity I have been given, and please spread the word!
