Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. To show my support, I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s Team Breakthrough Endurance program. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
I am running this marathon in honor of my dear friend Beth! Beth was diagnosed with a glioblastoma last December. Beth fought a long and hard battle but she unfortunately lost her battle with this terrible disease on November 28, 2016. Beth was one of the biggest supporters of not only my running but her sisters Kate and Kerry. Beth always said if you can't be an athlete be an athletic supporter. I will be running along side her sisters to honor her memory and so many others who are fighting, fought, or survived this disease.
