For the Leapharts- in memory of Jeff

This year, I'm running with your support in honor of Jeff Leaphart. Last year, Jeff lost his battle with lung cancer and is survived by his wife, Jenny, and their two young boys, Quenton and Logan. Jenny, one of my dear co-workers and a special education teacher, astounds me daily with her smile, love for others, and joy she takes in her students. Not once have I seen Jenny come in with a negative or harsh attitude, even in the face of such extreme adversity. She always has a genuine smile on her face and is much stronger than I think she knows.

The money we raise together for the Leaphart family will go directly to fund the boys' education. I've put together a video of their family in honor of Jeff. Thank you for your kind, thoughtful, and loving donation.
