Hello, my name is Lauren Settle.
This fundraiser is important to me because everyone has been touched by an illness of a loved one, but not everyone has gone through it with a child. The goal of this charity is to assist those families with children who are ill and to help cover some of the costs that can build up when trying to get them healthy again. These donations support children and provide the money to help them become healthy, ease the financial stress on families, and give them more time together. I can’t imagine money being used in a better way if it can somewhat alleviate the troubles these families are going through.
I am happy to run with the UHG team (this will be my second time running the Rock n’ Roll half marathon in D.C.!) and I am excited to reach my goal and our team’s financial goal.
