FAITH HOPE LOVE
Team Faith Hope Love is participating in the Twin Cities BT5K in memory of Jim Smyth—father of team members, Kelli and Jamie, and husband of team member, Sue. Jim fought a courageous 10-year battle with a primary cancerous brain tumor, passing away in March, 2011 at the young age of 49 years. Jim’s legacy of courage and strength in the face of incredible adversity is a true inspiration to all of us as we continue his dream of one day finding a cure for this devastating disease. We walk to raise awareness of this disease. We walk to raise funds for the American Brain Tumor Association. We walk in honor and memory of Jim.
