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 never thought this would be me. Running more than 5 miles has never interested me. When i heard about the fundraiser last year. I was like "no way" too hard. when approached about it this year I was still very hesitant. I decided to push my body to the limits for a child that may never know what it's like to run 1 mile. My wife was diagnosed with cancer less than a year into our marriage. We know the struggle. She continues to give back and support patients locally in Dayton. She is really my why. She is my inspiration and after reading Carter's story, I just hope to be as strong as him on August 3ed.
Carter is 5 years old and was diagnosed with Leukemia on July 27, 2018. He has been receiving outpatient treatment for his cancer at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital for nearly nine months now, and he has remained positive throughout his entire journey. Carter's new normal consists mostly of playing with superhero figures, army guys, and Legos at home with me, his mom, as well as working on kindergarten readiness skills. Carter is simply an amazing, strong, inspiring little man, and he is without doubt my little superhero.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Carter’s Big Wish?
