In memory of Anna we have formed a fundraising team named Anna’s Flying Pigs. We have a group of about 20-25 people running and walking either the 13.1 mile half marathon or the 26.2 full marathon this December in Memphis, TN. I have signed up once again to run the half marathon. I’m not crazy enough to try and run a full marathon. Some people may not agree with that statement.
When you run through the campus of the hospital and you see some of the patients outside cheering you on or standing in the windows waving and cheering it is the most inspiring moment you will ever experience. To think about what those children are going through and they are showing their support for you. If it doesn’t touch your heart nothing will.
Over the course of my training I will run over 200 miles and put in many hours cross training and in the gym. So now you know why I am raising money for such a wonderful cause…. It is worth it….
I hope that you will support me in my efforts to raise funds for St. Jude and childhood cancer research. All the money raised goes directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Please feel free to forward this one to anyone you know that like to help fight the good fight.
