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 a special education teacher and I see day in and day out the struggle that my students (and their families) can face - both in school and in life. I am running for every one of my students that has struggled so that I can show them that challenges can be overcome! I'm going to struggle through this challenge as I am not a natural runner but I'll be keeping some pretty special kids close to my heart as I run - especially Mya, Julia, Natalie, Addie, Claire, our other 9 wish kids and all my students (past and present)!! I can do it with your help!
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?
