Hi! I'm Lauren, a mom of 3 little humans 👧🏻👧🏻🧑🏼, and 4 fur babies 🐶🐶🐱🐱, a wife, sister, auntie, friend and much more...a Registered Nurse by night at Beverly Hospital (pediatrics and adult medical surgical), retired college baller 🏀, neat freak, beach lover and a wanna be marathoner!
I've made the decision to run for my Mom. My Mom lost her heroic battle with endometrial cancer on May 20, 2019. She fought like a champion for 3 years. She will forever be my hero. All donations made to my run will be given back to Cancer, more specifically patient care and research at Beverly Hospital.
My mom was my best friend and never missed a game, dance recital, and into my adulthood any crazy race I signed up for (5K's, 10K's and my Half Marathon). My Dad too was right there cheering me on. He passed away unexpectedly in his sleep in 2011. Losing both your parents as a young adult has been challenging, especially when I had the pleaseure of having such active and involved parents. I've learned that every day is a gift, and life is so very precious. I'm so grateful that my parents made me into the determined person I am today. I want to make both my parents so proud of this accomplishment and be able to give back to a cause that is so dear to me. Thanks in advance for all your support! I'll need it! ❤️
