Andrew McNamee, 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.
This year will be my third year running one mile, every hour, for 24 consecutive miles. I do this for many reasons, but this biggest is knowing how strong these kids are. If they can grow up with these life threatening conditions, living in hospitals for months at a time, having countless tests done to them; then I can be in a little discomfort for a single day of my life to make their dreams come true.
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?
