Last year I ran the the 2013 Austin Marathon in honor of my friend, Kate Voth, who had been battling cancer since 2009. Together with 118 teammates, we became the #1 LIVESTRONG team in the nation, raising over $61,000 and sharing Kate’s story with the world.
Shortly after the race, on June 1, 2013, Kate passed away, ending her valiant battle with cancer. Her courage, grace, and unwavering spirit in the face of debilitating pain were a continual source of inspiration to the hundreds of people who had the honor of knowing her.
I can't think of a better way to honor this heroic figure in my life than to try and succeed once more in raising over $500 in her name. Please support our team as we make a difference in the battle against cancer through our participation with Team LIVESTRONG.
