My Story…

Avery is running in memory of her dad in the Wellwood Run for your Bum for Colorectal Cancer Awareness this October. This is our 8th year running in this race! We began participating in the race only weeks after Jason (aka Daddy) was diagnosed with rectal cancer. Avery was 3 yrs old. We were lucky to run with Jason the first couple of years, before he passed away. Now Team "Running for Daddy" participates in his name every year. This event means a lot to Avery and she feels proud to run for her daddy each year. Last year she got 3rd place in the kids run and was very proud of herself. This year the event is virtual, but Team Running for Daddy plans to get outside and participate in activities we think Jason would have liked. If you would like to support families living with cancer, please consider supporting Avery for the run by clicking the link above. I know this is a challenging time financially for many people, so any little bit helps.

Donate to help Avery raise money for Wellwood Walk/Run/Wheel’s fundraising campaign.
