February 2014 – I had no idea what it meant to run for someone else. I knew that I had an ability to run and wanted to share this journey with a sweet special needs child. So I joined the “I Run 4” community.
May 29th, 2014 – I was matched with a sweet little two year old girl with Rett Syndrome. I had never heard of Rett Syndrome. Her name is Lauren!
Over the last year and a few months I have learned more about Rett Syndrome, Lauren and her sweet family! I thought I would be the one giving to them. Little did I know that their journey and their story would make break my heart for these sweet Rett girls! It makes me run faster, sweat more and pray for a cure! This terrible disease may have stolen several of their abilities, but it can not steal their light! Her smile could light up a room!
August 9th, 2015 – I got to hug and share sweet kisses and Whataburger French fries with Lauren!
