LAUREN PARRISH, 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.
[he-ro] - noun
is an extrordinary individual who finds the strength to perservere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
I am running to prove that some of our biggest inspirations come in such little bodies. They are more tough than all of us combined. So I run, in hopes to be 1/3 of what these sweet, ’Wish’ kids represent...heroes.
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?
Thanks to our sponsor Johnnycake Financial
