Running for Jackson

This July my 10 year old nephew Jackson was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of pediatric cancer. It was shocking to our family because a couple weeks before the diagnosis, he was playing at the beach. This cancer is very aggressive and once his final biopsy results came chemo was immediately started. The treatments are very tough both physically and emotionally for anyone, but especially a child. I wish I could be in his place but since I cannot, I decided I would... challenge myself and a few friends to run 250 miles in one month. I hate running but I will tough it out for Jackson. We are running united to show him and our families and friends that Sarcoma can suck it! Maybe along the way we will also raise some money to donate to help other children fighting this disease. Our exact charity has not been chosen however, we will be posting our chosen charity shortly. Please donate to our cause. If we do not run 250 miles we will not take the money. It's all or nothing just like the battle Jackson is facing. ‪#‎suckitsarcomaforjackson‬
