2018 Akron Marathon Children's Champions
Thank you for visiting my Children’s Champion page where I’m tracking my fundraising and training for the FirstEnergy Akron Marathon.
For those who know me personally, you can probably guess that I don’t run for the just for the fun of it. I run because I teach others that exercise is an important part to reaching their best health, and I should practice what I teach. I run because I want my kids to be active and healthy, and I read a study that showed kids who see their parents exercising are more active. I run because I feel better when I am done. I run to manage my stress. I run to raise money for an awesome hospital that helps so many children and their families.
While Children’s is ranked among the best children’s hospitals in the country, it’s our compassionate approach to treatment that makes us truly exceptional. Through a combination of revolutionary treatments and extraordinary patient experience, our care does more than heal. It brings the entire family together for the emotional support and understanding across multiple locations to reach families in the communities where they live. And we are continually growing our ability to help our patients and their families!
Thank you for your support of Akron Children’s mission and dedication to improving the health of the children in our community.
I’m fundraising as part of the FirstEnergy Akron Marathon, Half Marathon and Team Relay. Funds raised through my online fundraising page will assist patients and their families at Akron Children’s Hospital.
