I am running in memory of my son, Aaron. Five years ago he died of cancer; he was just 3 1/2 years old.
For the past 5 years I have been working with CureSearch through their Ultimate Hike program. I have hiked five Ultimate Hikes all around the country. Last year I ran the Twin Cities 10 mile as part of the CureSearch Challenge program and decided to try the Gary Bjorklund Half Marathon this summer.
Running isn't easy and sometimes I wonder why I do it, but when I am feeling tired, or like I can't go on, I think of my little Aaron and how hard he fought for every precious day of his short life. No one loved life more than he did and I choose to live my life in his honor...and that means challenging myself to do things that are hard!
Thank you for your support as I run to help fund a cure for childhood cancer so, someday, no family will have to know the emptiness of losing a child to cancer.
