Why I'm Running
I couldn’t really describe to you how it feels to cross that finish line and fist bump one of the many kids you’ve been inspired by throughout every aspect of this journey. Seeing the big smiles on their faces, while they jump for joy and cheer you on. These kids have had to do such big things in their little lives. If I can help them get their wishes granted, I’m going to give it all I’ve got to do it!!
About Team Mae

March 30, 2017, our lives completely changed. We had a beautiful little girl weighing in at 5 lbs. 1 oz. 17 inches and we named her Mae Paulette. Her middle name is symbolic of my dad, her Papa, Paul. There could not have been a better name for her because her strength and resilience of dealing with everything she has to deal with is the strength that my dad always showed. When she was born, we did not know of her unique qualities, but we knew gazing into those beautiful crystal blue starburst eyes something was super special about her.

Fast forward 10 months later she was admitted in the hospital because she was not growing and had the highest calcium in the world at 18.6. A few weeks later we found out she has Williams Syndrome. Along with a bubbly personality, starburst eyes, and an infectious smile, it comes with some things that are challenging. She has major heart, kidney, calcium, global development, vision and developmental delays.

To know Mae is to love her. You just can’t help it. She lights up any room she is in with no judgment. Anyone who is in her presence gravitates towards her. I have watched it many times even with her not saying a word. It is truly ahhMAEzing.

She loves with more than just her whole heart, she has never judged anybody, she is what God wanted us all to be. She is truly a saving grace and blessing in this world. She is already made such a huge positive impact. And that smile of hers could not be more infectious.
