HANNAH JAROS, TEAM MARYN
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 am participating in the Anytime Fitness 24 in 24 Challenge to help raise money for all the children who have fought to overcome so many obstacles in their life. While this is my first year participating, I chose to do this for the kids who didn’t have a choice. They did not choose to go through what they are, but I can choose to dedicate 24 hours of my life to make their days a little bit better.
Maryn was born in March of 2013, looking surprisingly healthy for having been diagnosed in utero with rare congenital heart defects (Truncus Arteriosus, a VSD & an ASD). In the beginning of August 2013, Maryn was evaluated for a heart transplant, although it was determined she was not a candidate due to her 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome and her over 40 blood transfusions. On her 6-month birthday, her amazing medical team was able to successfully replace both valves and Maryn came home for the first time 218 days after she was born. Maryn is now 6 years old, she has overcome many obstacles and is currently thriving! She enjoys swimming, music, dancing, soccer, her iPad and most of all her brother.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Maryn’s Big Wish?
