Matt and I were as thick as thieves growing up and our sibling rivalries were epic... especially when it came to Madden. As many of you know, Matt recently lost his battle with depression and anxiety. He took his life the evening of October 8th, 2019. He called each of us (siblings) that night and we tried to talk him out of it. Our hearts are broken, but we are also at peace knowing he is no longer struggling with the difficult challenges of life. Matt was an avid runner and I had the privilege of completing several runs with him over the years. Our dad also passed unexpectedly in March of 2019 to a heart attack and Matt took it upon himself to do what he could to help raise awareness for heart health. Matt's passion for this cause and running has lit a fire inside me and I intend to pick up where he left off. However, my first run, Grandmas Marathon, will be to raise awareness in Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, in honor of my brother Matt. I am asking if you would consider running with me or supporting me along the way. I have a goal of $2,000 and my hope is to reach the goal by early May.
