Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page! I have committed to running an endurance event as a part of Race Towards A Cure. The money I raise will benefit cutting-edge brain cancer research through Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and will get us one step closer to a cure!

I am running a Half Marathon July 20, 2014 in Chicago IL as part of the Rock N Roll Series. I love to run and I want to give back to my community.

Our family learned of a sweet boy at my daughter's school who was only 8 years old when he was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor in his brain stem in July 2013. For 9 months our community rallied together for Ethen and his family to show our support. Ethen participated in a clinical trial at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN that involved experimental drugs and radiation. The family spent 8 weeks in Memphis.

Ethen participated in Make-A-Wish on NYE 2013/2014 in New York City. Ethen had in his mind that New York City was bigger than the moon. His mom Brandy said "When he wanted to proclaim his love for us he would say Momma, Daddy, I love you bigger than New York City."

On May7, 2014, Ethen's Dad Todd wrote on their Facebook page:(https://www.facebook.com/EthenRichardsonUpdates)

Ethen is completely healed and there is no more sickness.

God Called his little angel back home today.

The family and community rallied together and gave Ethen the biggest send off he could imagine on May 10th at Awendaw Green. There were hundreds of people who came out to celebrate Ethen. It was a beautiful event with popcorn, snow cones, cotton candy, jump castles and even pony rides. That evening we released Red Balloons and Chinese Lanterns for Ethen.

This little boy has touched my heart. My heart aches for his family and all families that are going through this. I am running and raising money to help find a Cure.

I can't do this without your help! Please consider supporting my efforts with a donation and join in the fight against brain cancer. To make a donation, click on the "Donate" button to the right.

Training Update and initial donation
Hi all! I am so excited to be doing this. I love to run. I want to Run for a Reason. I am taking a personal challenge to commit to my training and donate along the way. I have committed to donate $1.00 to every mile I train and $5/mile the day of my race on July 20, 2014 in the great city of Chicago! That will be about a $300 commitment on my part. Cannot wait to get to my goal!
