On August 3rd and 4th, I will attempt to run one mile every hour for 24 hours straight for Ryan, my A Special Wish kiddo.
Having been in the nursing field, I've seen first hand the challenges that kids like Ryan and their families face every day. I know the 24IN24 challenge won't be easy, but I also know that it will be nothing compared to what kids with chronic illnesses go through on a daily basis. I'm running to do my small part to help in whatever way I can. I'm honored to be running for Team Ryan, please read his story below.
In November 2018, a swollen lymph node on Ryan’s neck revealed that Ryan was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin T Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Ryan is a smart, fun, energetic, competitive 12-year-old boy with big dreams and an even bigger heart. He loves being outdoors, playing hockey, and spending time with friends and family.
