p.s. this is why i am running

my sister had cancer. and then she beat it and went on to become this amazing person. last month she celebrated her fifth year of being cancer free-- a huge landmark! since my sister's recovery, she has run 2 full marathons so far! her confidence and strength is owed largely to First Descents, a camp "committed to curing young adults of the emotional effects of cancer and empowering them to regain control of their lives by experiencing outdoor adventure therapy"

on june 25th my sister and brother and i are running the Seattle Rock N Roll Half Marathon and we are raising money to help other young adults attend First Descents. i truly believe in this program as a means to empower and help young adults living with cancer. you can help out too by going to my page and donating! anything helps! even 5 dollars goes a long way!
