ABC2's Community Connections

Team Kim- Publix Marathon/Half Marathon

 

Welcome to our Team Kim Homepage! Kim Adams Roberts is a wife, mother, artist, inspiration, prayer warrior and friend who is valiantly fighting a brain tumor.  In December 2011, while pregnant with her beautiful daughter Sydney, Kim was diagnosed with a tumor.  Since giving birth in mid-March to Sydney, Kim has had brain surgery, lots of consults with doctors, and started a radiation regimen, which will be followed by a year of chemotherapy.  Armed with faith in God and His plans for her life, Kim is facing this challenge like a champ!

On the weekend of March 17, 2013, we will convene in Atlanta to celebrate Kim's amazing efforts in her fight against this tumor. We will do so by participating in the Publix Georgia Marathon/Half Marathon to raise money to benefit cutting-edge brain cancer research through Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure.  It won't be all work- we'll also have a party to celebrate with Kim! And we are also hoping to have Team Kim t-shirts (with graphics by the extraordinary Tad Roberts, if we can convince him!) closer to the event. More details to come on all of this.

How can you support Team Kim?  First, you can pray for Kim and her family. To learn more about Kim's fight, check out her blog:  http://whatsonkimsbrain.blogspot.com/

You can also join us for the run on March 17 to show your support for Kim.  If you've never run a half marathon or marathon, you still have plenty of time to train.  We will see runners of all levels, so don't be afraid to give it a shot.  You may also set up your own fundraising page with a financial goal that you are comfortable with for yourself.  Big or small, we will be delighted with whatever goal you set.  Whatever you raise will count toward our team goal. We've set a team goal of $10,000.  To set up your page, check out the link below under Team Kim ("Join Team").
