Why We Run: Molly (chicago team)
My father was diagnosed with a rare type of Melanoma on the bottom of his foot. An area that rarely gets sun.
We were told this was a non agressive type of Melanoma.
He spent his retirement fighting the cancer that spread throughout his body and formed large cysts allover his leg.
I feel fortunate to have had the times we shared.
He showed me how precious and short life is.
I chose Jack’s Fund as charity partner before registration for the Chicago marathon even opened.
I want to run Chicago both for myself and for my dad.
Raising money for this great organization will help find a cure for Melanoma and also help families who are in the fight.
If I can make a difference in just one daughters life, the miles of training will be worth it.
