Carmen Vitolo, Team Ayden Challenger
On the weekend of August 3rd, I will be taking on the Anytime Fitness 24 in 24. I will be attempting to run one mile every hour for 24 consecutive hours.
I highly recommend that all sponsors, friends, and family come join us at the “Final Mile Party” at 11:00 am on Sunday, August 4th at the Captain's Stadium in Eastlake. It’s a truly incredible hour that you won’t want to miss!
I am excited to be back for my second year taking on this challenge. I learned last year that there is nothing more rewarding than the feeling you receive when you are able to take on a physical and mental challenge, such as this event, and use it to benefit these kids that take on greater challenges daily without choice. These kids are amazing and anything I can do to help is an honor.
Ayden was born on September 6, 2013 and he was transferred to the NICU due to the lack of oxygen. He has suffered with a number of medical issues including PEG, Cystic Fibrosis, GURD, GI disorder, MRSA with viral meningitis, CDIFF, and a Blood Clot Disorder. Additionally, Ayden battles Hypohydronic Ectodermal Dysplasia (HED). This condition causes Ayden to lack sweat glands, tear ducts, teeth, a voice, hair, and fingernails. It has also caused lung and breathing issues, and deterioration of the lining of his stomach.
