COURTNEY ELLIS, TEAM MYA
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.
The kids are my reason for coming back to this event for my 3rd year in a row. Some people think I’m a little crazy for running 1 mile every hour for 24 consecutive hours, and it gets a little rough at 3am, but what these angels have been through or have to go through has been way tougher. So, if this event helps make a Special Wish come true, I’d do it a million times over.
On September 12th 2013, ten-month-old Myalee went into her first surgery to remove a protruding lump on the left side of her neck that turned out to be a malignant tumor. She began her first of four rounds of four different types of chemo in November 2013. All in all, she had a total of seven surgeries. Myalee greets each day with a big smile, she is a happy, loving, imaginative, spunky and bossy little girl.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Mya’s Big Wish?
