I am running in April at the Star Wars 10k at Disney World and at first I was doing it to finally shed the baby weight I gained while pregnant with my 2nd, awesome daughter. But then realized that that reason was not enough. Plus registration was closed for any individual runners so in order to run I had to join a team and essentially fundraise my way to run. So I was about to give up on this goal of running a 10k, but I looked at the list of organizations just to see if there was anything that jumped out at me or sparked my interest. Well something did, actually someone ... Maxwell Reid Pogers. This little guy graced this world on August 26, 2014 and earned his wings on June 4, 2015 after courageously fighting against leukemia. I am lucky enough to be friends with this little's man parents and big sister. I am NOT a runner by any means, but I am going to run for this little guy and for all the children who have and are fighting cancer.
I joined with Team Lemon to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation move one step closer to finding a cure for all children with cancer! You can support me by visiting my page, making a donation or joining me! The money you donate will pay for research to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer. Please help kids and their families by providing desperately needed hope! Thanks for your support!
