Dear family and friends:
On September 13-14, 2019, I will be running a 100 mile race, Run Rabbit Run 100, in beautiful Steamboat, Colorado. 100+ miles in the Colorado Rockies with over 20,000 feet of climbing. In conjunction with this race, I would like to raise funds for cancer. Cancer is a scourge in our world, it discriminates against no one and touches everyone.
I am running in honor and memory of my dear friend Alli Gerkman, who passed away at the young age of 41 this past Saturday, August 31, after battling cancer on three separate occasions for the past 5 years. Alli fought with grit and grace and will be terribly missed. Alli will continue to be an important inspiration in the lives of so many. Alli would want us to be fierce in our undertakings, and I will run fiercely.
Any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated.
Much love, Ilene
