JENNIFER EDGELL, TEAM CHARLOTTE
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 is my second year running. I see these sweet little faces, like Charlotte's and read what they have been through, what their families have been through and know that I can help. Charlotte has undergone open heart surgery at 21 months old and countless doctor visits!!! I can run 24 miles for her to get her special wish.
Charlotte was born on August 13, 2013. Charlotte received her first echocardiogram, electrocardiogram and other testing when she was just three days old. She was in heart failure and had been born with Congenital Endocardial Cushion Defects. She underwent her first open heart surgery at 21 months old. She still has mitral valve regurgitation and stenosis which will eventually require more surgeries. She has also been diagnosed with Apraxia, Hypotonia, and most recently was diagnosed as having a genetic duplication on her 7th chromosome. Charlotte has experienced so much in her almost 6 years of life and remains an upbeat, caring, determined person.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Charlotte’s Big Wish?
