Andrea López, Team Andrew
This August 3rd-4th I will be attempting to run one mile every hour for 24 consecutive hours in the Anytime Fitness 24 in 24 Challenge.
Recently, I found out that I have high blood pressure. This was very scary for me and not necessarily a problem I'd like to have at twenty-six, so I decided to make a life change. Originally, I was running just to get healthy, but after learning about Andrew's story I am not only running to get fit, but also to make a difference in such a special person's life.
Andrew was diagnosed with a life-threatening neuromuscular condition having no cure, which impacts all muscles from swallowing to breathing to walking. About six months ago, one of his medical professionals made the profound statement, "We have moved past the stage of just trying to keep Andrew alive; now we need to focus on his future." Andrew is truly an amazing little man with such a positive attitude and reminds us to count our blessings every day.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Andrew’s Big Wish?
