When my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, my mom signed up for a half-marathon to raise money for Leukemia research. She had never run a half-marathon before but trained hard for a year and completed the race while raising a lot of money for the Leukemia Society. Her dedication made us all very proud and inspired us all to participate in charity runs. Since then, my whole family has signed up for a 10 Km run on Mother’s Day to spend the day doing something my mom loves and contributing to a great cause. We always have so much fun doing this together, and it is a great way to keep us all active!
