Wanted to give you an update on our Honorees for our fundraising effort for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. My list of 100 keeps growing (unfortunately) and we are getting there so keep sending names and stories of those I can run for. I am honored to do this for you and for all of our Honorees. I hope to do you proud at the Akron Marathon on September 26th, and at the Oil Creek 100 on October 10th. Thanks so much!
First of all though, if you haven’t heard… 11 year old Alexa Brown lost her battle with cancer this morning at 4 a.m. So sadly I run in memory of Alexa rather than in honor of. Please say a prayer for her and her family.
