KELLI MASI, 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.
As a medical social worker, I see how chronic and terminal illness effects not only the individual, but their entire familIes everyday. I am running 24 in 24 to help these kiddos and their families enjoy some kind of normal with their Special Wish. I am also challenging myself to endure just one day of what Andrew and his family go through everyday by running 24 in 24.
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?
