Last year, 118 runners and walkers participated in the 2013 Austin Marathon in honor of our friend Kate Voth and her courageous fight against cancer. Together, we raised more than $61,000 for the LIVESTRONG Foundation and shared Kate’s story with the world.
I never thought I could run more than a 5K, not to mention a half marathon! But with Kate's encouragement, self-discipline and determination, I did it. Round 2, happening February 2014. I'd love for you to join and train with me!
Donations go the LIVESTRONG Foundation, which serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against this disease that is now the world's leading cause of death. LIVESTRONG has become a symbol of hope and inspiration to people affected by cancer around the world.
The money I raise will support programs and services for cancer survivors. These resources help people diagnosed with cancer face the challenges of the disease head on and live life on their own terms. Livestrong.org/WeCanHelp
I miss you, Kate. I know in my heart you'll be running every step of the way next to me.
