In the past five years I have lost four close family members four other extended family members and had several friends who are survivors of cancer. Last year Matthew and I ran the dolphin challenge which is an 8 k followed by a half marathon the next day, at the Yuengling shamrock weekend races and raised over $2500. This year to show our gratitude for all the support we have decided to do the whale challenge during the Yuengling shamrock weekend races. This consists of running an 8k on Saturday and a full marathon on Sunday. We again ask for your support as we run with all our heart in an effort to raise money and awareness for Livestrong.
