While below is the best description ever of what this fundraiser is all about, I would also like to take a moment to talk about myself (my favorite thing to do!)
I am a 21 year survivor of Leukemia, ALL. For those who don't know, it is a blood cancer that affects people of all ages, but very commonly seen in children. I was diagnosed four months after my second birthday, and was finished a month shy of my fifth birthday. Like all people diagnosed with cancer, many things were against me, but I managed to kick it to the curb and never look back!!
I have heard of ragnar many times through many other non-profits I know of, and always wanted to participate! How perfect that Stupid Cancer got a team together! Lastly to add, I have never been the most athletic person out there, so I am using my instagram to track my running progress starting July 1st, 2016, up until the end of the race!! So please donate, and follow my training on instagram- kellydavisknowsbest , now get out there and #getbusyliving

This November 4-5th, a group of awesome folks will be running the Ragnar Relay in Napa Valley to support the young adult cancer community to Get Busy Living in the face of cancer. With the fragrance of wine country in the air, the sun on their shoulders, and friends at their side, they will run the 200-mile-ish course from San Francisco to Napa. Not only will they raise awareness for young adult cancer through their efforts, they will raise transformative funds for Stupid Cancer, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that comprehensively addresses young adult cancer through advocacy, research, support, outreach, awareness, mobile health and social media. Stupid Cancer's innovative, award-winning and evidence-based programs and services serve as a global bullhorn to propel the young adult cancer movement forward.
