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 stood in the stands last year supporting my friend and now Team Captain, Mary Beth, as she took on this challenge and was completely moved and inspired by the selflessness and strength that so many in our community indured to support these beautiful children. I'm running for the kids that did not choose the challenges they live with each day and handle it with smiles on their faces and continue to just wanting to be kids. Their courage makes me want to be better, rethink "bad" days, and to just be kinder and patient to everyone around me. I thank them for their braveness.
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?
