Kelly and Michael Lish's Fundraiser:

Team Bear the Challenge

THE STORY:

Last year I was inspired by Alyson Kee, to run the Rock n' Roll Chicago Half Marathon in support of Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.  This year, I am continuing my committment to Team Bear and plan to run the 2013 Chicago Marathon on October 13th in honor of this brave little girl and so many like her who have battled this disease.

Alyson is the daughter of a good friend of mine.  She was diagnosed with Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in 2011. Alyson's story is one of strengh and inspiration as she underwent over a year of chemo and steriods and is currently in a maintenance phase.  Through it all, she has continued to be a happy, positive, vibrant girl who loves to play soccer and do art.  Alyson is an ambassador for Bear Necessities and Team Bear and it is her journey that inspired me to get involved with the organization.

This year, I also convinced my husband, Michael, to run the marathon in support of Team Bear. Together, we hope to raise funds for Bear Necessities so they may continue to provide support to children with cancer and their families and fund research for pediatric cancer.  Please help us support this outstanding organization.
