On November 17th, Jessie and I will be taking on a new challenge. We will be in Las Vegas about to run our first half marathon.
This event is special to both of us because we will be running on behalf of the B+ Foundation, which supports children and their families who are dealing with pediatric cancer by funding research and supporting families, both financially and emotionally. The foundation was started after Andrew, a happy and active teen, died of Leukemia at 14 years old.
We are running harder, faster and more than we ever have before. The support, prayers, and love of our families and friends will be crucial for us to accomplish our goals of finishing the race, and raising a combined total of $6000 for the B+ Foundation.
This blog will document our journey; our fastest times, our struggles, our 5k and 10k races and our fundraisers that will happen up until the 17th.
We appreciate the support, and are excited for what the next 4 months hold!
If you would like to donate to the B+ Foundation in our names to help us reach our goal we would greatly appreciate it! You can find our pages on the B+ Foundation website on the Las Vegas Marathon/Half Marathon section or by following the links: Jessie's Page and Kelsey's Page.
Thank you for all the continued support.
