Why I'm Running
After running handfuls of half marathons and marathons, and 2 ultra marathons, the common question I receive is “Why do you run? Do you really like it? Isn’t it boring?” Typically, I run for the accomplishment and to prove to myself that I can do whatever I put my mind to. But my Why for the 24 in 24 is not for the accomplishment - it goes beyond that. While yes, it is quite an accomplishment to run 24 miles in 24 hours, what is more amazing are the battles these wish kiddos have fought through, and continue to fight through, every day of their lives. My Why are these wish kiddos. My Why is to put myself in an uncomfortable state for those 24 hours (okay, and maybe those few days afterwards!) just how many wish kiddos live their lives uncomfortable. My Why is to raise money to help grant the kiddos their special wishes, and to help them feel on top of the world. My Why is to run for those who cannot or will not ever be able to run. So instead of asking me Why, I ask you, Why Not? :)
About Team Harper S.

Harper is one of the sweetest and loving 4-year-olds you will ever meet, even though she’s already been through a lot in her life. At age 2, Harper was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy, among other diagnoses. Early on, Harper showed us no one can steal her thunder- she meets every negative with a smile! Her infectious laughter and happy go lucky personality attract people of all ages. Her fighting spirit has allowed her to surpass expectations of even the most respected doctors in the medical community. Harper continues to share her happy and courageous spirit with others to raise money for ASW. We are forever grateful for the foundation and all the joy it has and will continue to bring us.
