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.
HANNAH SCHMIKLA, TEAM MAKAILEY
This year I will be running for Makailey, a brave and strong little girl with a heart defect. I am an oncology nurse at Seidman Cancer Center and see pain and suffering almost daily. If my patients and these kids can go through unthinkable hardships, then I can run these miles. I will run for the ones who have lost the fight and for the ones who are still fighting.
"run with endurance." Hebrews 12:1
Makailey was diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) named Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) at 20 weeks gestation. She has had three open heart surgeries since she was born on January 19, 2015. She faces each day with a smile and keeps pushing forward. She is a super hero!
