Running for Hope

This January 16-17 is the next running of the HURT 100 miler, and I’m working to create an event in conjunction with this epic endeavor.  While running the 100 miles, I’m planning to don a shirt with the names of Hawaii children fighting their personal battle with cancer.  I’m calling this effort of love Running for Hope after seeing Trevor’s cancer return.  It makes me think that sometime HOPE is the strongest medicine one can take.

And I’m doing what I can to dish out some powerful HOPE.  But I’m not doing this alone.  The Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation has accepted my request to collaborate with them on this project, and we are in the process of gathering names.  Also, a wonderful local designer, Tai Blechta, is making the shirt with signatures a reality.  Thanks to both for their support.

As for me, I just need to keep training to make this run as special as I can.  And when I recovery, I plan to bring a shirt to each of the children to show them that anything is possible … with HOPE.
