Join me in my efforts to support Akron Children's Hospital!

Hello and welcome to my page. This year I've decided to go #allin and conquer my goal of completing the Akron Marathon (26.2 miles) in September. But this is more than just running for me. It's supporting those who have endured more than sweating after a long run. A little over 3 months ago, good friends of mine Jenna and Matt Farley welcomed their daughter Emelyn to the world. Emelyn was diagnosed gastroschisis which is where she had a small hole in her abdominal wall because it didn't close all of the way while it was forming. This in turn causes some of the abdominal organs to grow and form outside of the baby's belly. After a 59 day NICU stay where Emelyn had 3 abdominal surgeries to close her belly, and where she developed hydrocephalus which resulted in brain surgery that led to a shunt placed in her brain that will require procedures for the rest of her life, Emelyn was able to go home. The amazing courage and strength Emelyn had at such a young age along with her parents, this has inspired to push my limits this fall. With that being said I am becoming an ACHChampion to raise money for Akron Children's Hospital in Emelyn's honor so the hospital can continue their amazing work. So thank you for visiting my page and your generous donation.
