Twins Run (Walk/Ride) in Our Family

September 26, 2014
This cleverly titled team is captained by Leah and Malinda: identical twins, sisters and running partners. They’ve recruited some other twins to join them in this year’s AMM and are using social media, including their blog, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, to raise awareness of Alex’s Million Mile and childhood cancer. They’ve gained quite a following of twins, runners, and those (like Leah and Malinda!) who are both! Leah and Malinda are incredible year round supporters of ALSF who are also members of Team Lemon and participate in countless races across the country to raise funds and spread awareness of ALSF,

Leah and Malinda are identical twins and mother runners. We run together, in memory of Michael and GG, to fight childhood cancer.

Last year, we joined more than 5,000 people in the inaugural Million Mile Run to raise awareness of childhood cancer during the month of September (National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month).

This year, we’re ready to do it again! To find a cure for childhood cancer, we’re going the distance to help Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation reach one million miles.

To incorporate walking and cycling miles this year, the name of this month-long event has been changed to "Alex’s Million Mile – Run. Walk. Ride." The goal is to collectively run, walk and/or ride one million miles to raise funds and increase awareness of the need to support childhood cancer research.

If twins run (walk and/or ride) in your family, you are welcome to join our group and log your miles with us. Or, you can donate $2 or more to help us reach our fundraising goal. Thanks for your support!

Join us today!
