We were celebrating the lives of two very important people: Our Aunt Kathy who is battling cancer for the second time and now has terminal cancer and our Grandpa Woolley who is a survivor.
Our cousins did an amazing job at fundraising, and providing team T-Shirts, food, etc. A week before the race, my cousin sent out a sign up for slots on when we would be available to be on the track. Well, the schedule went pretty much out the window from the start. Our team was so anxious to be there that there were very few moments when there were less than 5 people from our team on the track. Brad and Mark, our cousins ran/walked 20 miles during the night and Jason walked at least 15 miles during the night. Our Uncle Rick, Aunt Doris, and cousin Jessica walked hours and hours. Jessica ran/walked a marathon during the relay. Our team was amazing. Doing this race really hit home….Cancer is real. Our Aunt Kathie has always been a favorite aunt and seeing her go through this again is heart breaking.
