Running For Linda
I created this team to honor my mother, Linda Parks. In addition, my dear cousin is a brain tumor survivor so we now walk/run to celebrate Susan Clark as well. My mom lost her battle with a Brain Tumor in January 2012. My mom is the true meaning of the word "Fighter". She never gave up and the strength and courage she showed to all that knew and loved her, will never be forgotten. This race is to raise money for Brain Tumor Research, in hopes to one day find a cure. One of the most challenging parts of the battle, for both my mom and our family, was all of the unknown. With each appointment brought more "we aren't sure's".
Being prepared, comforted, and maybe even one day being cured is a prayer I have for future and current brain tumor fighters. My mom loved life and if she could walk, wheel or even run through this finish line, I know she would. Instead, we will do it for her and in her honor.
I hope not to lose momentum despite the changes we will need to make this year. I hope you will still be able to run, walk or donate so that we can continue to support this cause. Even if you want to participate by running or walking on your own, but with us in spirit, I hope you will do so!
Thanks to all of you for your support to both a great foundation, but also to me and my family. I hope to see you all soon!
If you can't join us in Running For Linda, please donate with us and join the fight.
