Running Together to Remember on St. Patrick's Day

Michael, Leah's Irish brother-in-law, died of leukemia on St. Patrick's Day.

Today and all days, our thoughts are with those who loved Michael and all those who had the privilege of knowing him.

We run together in memory of Michael, Walter, and Cathy who all died from cancer.

One year ago we started our 1st fundraising page with Team Lemon to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer in memory of Michael. Four months later, our grandma GG died of cancer, too.

Over the past year, we ran four races together and raised over $1,500 in memory of Michael and GG.

This year, @TwinsRun Boston Athletic Association 5K on April 14 and Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 13 together to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

"Fighting childhood cancer, one mile at a time."

Any donation is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your support!
