Hi #werun22q fans! We are so thankful you have decided to join us as we again tackle a 200ish mile relay race for 22q! We are TWELVE weeks from race weekend and getting excited!!! Over the coming weeks and months, we are going to introduce you to all 12 runners, the cause – 22q11.2, and some of the children we are running for.
You’ll read about our team, our training, our packing, and our inspiration! We promise to be real about our struggles, both with running and with 22q, but this blog will be a place of positivity. You will read about how our children are smart, kind, brave, strong, friends, loved, and amazing – both because we believe children become who we tell them they are and also because they ARE all of those things. You will read about the friendships that have been formed because of this team; we have created our own village of people to lean on and have helped our children to do the same.
We do not take this role lightly. We are honored to be able to carry the names of all of these children and young adults. We respect their hard work day in and day out and are grateful you all trust us to carry them with us!
Here’s where you come in – check out the 22q Family Foundation. Look around this site and check out the 2019 team. Sponsor a mile for your loved one. Then send friends and family HERE to help you raise $100 for your mile!
