I RUN For Ashleigh

My friend Ashleigh died of cancer in September 2009,  leaving 4 children and a husband behind. Although I never met Ashleigh in person, her life touched mine at a time when I needed it most. Ashleigh's example and brave struggle with cancer gave me the courage and strength that I needed to go on. So now when I run, I do it for Ashleigh; I wear her name on my running shirt to honor her life.
