"So why do I run, you ask? I run to say thank you to a man who drove, flew, walked, and ran to every event in my life. I run to say thank you to the doctors who gave me extra time with him. I run to let my family know that I will go to any lengths for them, as Poppy did for us. I run so other families can spend more time with their loved ones. And I run because I would give anything to have one more minute.”
