KIRSTEN DOWNEY, TEAM AYDEN
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.
I began this journey as a challenge for myself to run 24 miles and to raise money for this sweet boy to go to Disney World. Now, as I have read the stories about Ayden and the other children, my focus is to raise money for these families and if I run all 24 miles, thats a bonus. I am very excited and blessed to be a part of this fundraiser.
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.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Ayden’s Big Wish?
