TYREE RODGERS , 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.
Last year I was invited to run a couple of miles with my friend. It was so impactful to me. Not at all taking away from what all the Challengers had done and Anna Dey‘s team for orchestrating such an amazing event but moreso and most importantly the great energy and the joy the kids had no matter the circumstances makes you put into prespective on what you should and can do within your own little bubble and whether in the grand scheme of things griping about traffic (which may never change lol) but if we could all do our part no matter on what scale we can help someone. This mindframe we can change the world!
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?
