THE STORY:

Hello friends and family! With September being Pediatric Cancer Awareness month I have made the decision to take part in the RunTough for TeamTommy 5K in memory of Tommy Ruddy who lost his battle to DIPG in November 2016. All proceeds will go to the ChadTough foundation which raises research dollars and awareness for pediatric brain cancer with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). I have included a photo above with some facts about DIPG. 


I first heard about Tommy last summer (August 2016) when a friend had made a Facebook post asking for prayers for Tommy and his family  after his diagnosis. Hearing about Tommy really struck a chord in my heart because  he lived a couple towns over from where I do in Michigan but even more so because at the time of his diagnosis he was he was five years old just like my nephew. Tommy never got to see his sixth birthday. 




I ask that you please consider donating, my fundraising goal is $100, every dollar counts! 

The Team: $0 TOTAL RAISED SO FAR
