ISF hits close to home. I lost a classmate and friend to cancer in 7th grade–she was just a kid, and one of the sweetest in our class. I’ve lost several family members to various forms of cancer. My best friend Tori lost her battle with leukemia in September. Cancer gets personal. But it’s even more personal when it affects a child and it is insulting that it is one of the least funded research programs in our country.
Joining the Dream Team gives me the opportunity to fight back against pediatric cancer and it gives me a purpose in my running goals. I’m excited to be a member of the Dream Team for the 2016 season and I’m ready for the challenges ahead. I love the camaraderie of the team and we have already begun building new friendships–and we are only two weeks in. I’m grateful for the opportunity to run for something more and to join the fight against pediatric cancer. And above all, I’m honored to run for Ibby and Tori.
