WHY I'M RUNNING

24 miles. 1 mile, every hour, on the hour, for 24 consecutive hours. Some may not understand why one would want to do such a challenge. But, for me, it's simple. You see, this isn't just about running 24 miles in 24 hours. I've always been up for a challenge, but it's so much more than that. For the past 3 years, I've watched my twin sister and her friends complete this challenge and have been wanting to join her to experience this side by side, together. This year is the year! The pure joy on the challengers faces when they finish the 24 hours is one thing. But nothing beats the smiles on the faces of the wish kids and their families when all these challengers and spectators come together with one goal in mind. This is all for them. To get these kids one step closer to their wish. If I can assist in giving them just a little more hope and a little more light in their lives, I will feel as if I already conquered the challenge. <br /> <br /> "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." <br /> - Helen Keller

The next year and a half of Annika’s life was filled with hospital stays, surgeries, and collecting a myriad of specialists, therapists, and secondary diagnoses. Anni has mixed hyperkinetic bilateral cerebral palsy, CVI and other neurological visual impairments, and takes most of ...
