WHY I'M RUNNING

I am not a runner; I hate running, but I am a mother. My heart breaks when I think about what the wish kids and their families go through daily while battling life-threatening illnesses. I am very blessed and grateful that I am physically and mentally able to take on this challenge. Please help by donating any amount to help bring joy to these very deserving children and their families. Please also join us on October 2nd (11AM) at the Captain's Stadium to be a part of this beautiful event.

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.
