Team Lemon

Hi. I know. It's been a while. I'm sorry. I've been on a race hiatus. I am happy to report that does not equate to a running hiatus. I have been running consistently, just low mileage which I am happy with right now. My next race isn't until November.

Speaking of November....I am so excited to share that I will be running the Philadelphia Half Marathon for Team Lemon and Alex's Lemonade Stand on November 22nd!

Unfortunately, I know of too many children who have suffered and ultimately died of cancer. I wanted to make a difference and thought what better way than to raise money for Team Lemon.

Alexandra "Alex" Scott, a young cancer patient, was only 4 years old when she decided to hold a lemonade stand to raise money for "her hospital," so doctors could help other kids like they'd helped her. Alex held her first stand in 2000 and continued to hold lemonade stands each year, inspiring support from her community and across the nation. Although sadly Alex passed away at the age of 8, she knew she had reached the ambitious goal of raising $1 million for childhood cancer research.
I am carrying on Alex's inspiring legacy by raising money to fight childhood cancer. Will you make a donation? As Alex's life showed, our small contributions can make a big impact. Thank you!
