As most of you know, I ran my first half marathon last year for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Days leading up to the race, I was able to meet a few of the children that have been helped by CMNH! It’s truly incredible what these children have been through and just how strong each of these children are (to have that kind of fight within you as a child is remarkable, yet heartbreaking at the same time). As I listened to their stories, their struggles, and most importantly how far they’ve come – it inspired me to run the half marathon again for such a great cause.
I’m thankful for everyone that donated last year- Thanks to my amazing family, friends, and my co-workers, I was the 5th highest fundraiser, which gave me the opportunity to meet some of the children that are fighting for their life.
I’m reaching out because I’m trying to raise $3K to support the sponsor of the race, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
