“Whitney was one of the most giving people that I knew. A natural introvert, she'd rather be by herself, but when someone was in need or she thought they needed some help, she was someone that would give you her all, and often times, more than that. Whether it be physical, monetary, or just her time, she was extremely selfless. This was embodied in her work and her career choice. Whitney went to school for sociology and worked in the field, so that she could help those who may not be able to really help themselves. She was very in touch with her spiritual side and often tried to help others when she could feel they may be down on their luck or not in sync spiritually. Whit also had one of the most contagious smiles I've seen. When she was in a good mood, everyone around her was in a good mood. Whenever a good time was to be had, she was often in the middle of whatever crowd, having all the fun. Just like her personality, when she could sense you weren't on the same good vibes as she, Whit would bring you in and made sure you had a good time.
She loved: Butterflies, red, music/dancing, volunteering, painting, crafts, her family/close friends."
This cause means so much to us that are running and Whitney’s family. We are extremely excited to impact a young person’s life as they prepare to begin a new chapter. We hope (and are sure) Whit is looking down and would be proud of what we are doing in her honor!
