Five years ago I lost my best friend to cancer. Six years ago my boyfriend lost his father. I am running in honor of them both. The more I fall in love with Kevin the more I miss the phone calls I would have made to Siobhan, gushing over how he hold my hands or buys me flowers. And the more sad I become that I will never get to meet the man, in this life, that raised my man to be the man that he is today.
I run in honor of Andy and in honor of Siobhan. To uphold their memories and to raise money so that less people have to lose best friends and dads. I want to fight cancer and help take care of families affected by this terrible disease.
Sibohan and I were performers at Walt Disney World together and "drank around the world" at EPCOT every year on our birthdays. These races (thats right, I am doing a 10K followed by a half the next day) run through EPCOT just four days after I turn 29. I feel like this is the perfect fit to honor her and continue fighting the fight.
This will be my second event with Kellsie's Krew and they have become a family of healing and hope. They are truly a worthy cause. And I like to think that Kellsie, Siobhan, and Andy are all watching the race- preferable with cocktails- from heaven.
Please support if you can. Any amount helps. Help us keep more dads with their families and more besites with their bestie!
