In memory of Carson Gene Higgins-
I was not a runner and I've never run a race! But, now I am running for my son and the future of other cancer patients. I never had any interest in running, but when Carson died, I was trying to decide how I could give back to a hospital that gave so much to us. I decided I really wanted the experience of running through the St. Jude campus with the staff and patients cheering me on, while raising funds for the current and future cancer patients.
Carson was a S.t Jude patient who was diagnosed at three years old on 4/13/07. Sadly, Carson lost his battle on 8/11/16 after battling Stage IV Neuroblastoma. St. Jude gave us over nine years of quality life that we never thought we would have. Carson loved St. Jude and didn't want to get treatment at any other hospital.
We're fundraising while we train for our race so we can make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer like Carson.
