Why I Run to the Sun
There is so much to love about this event! The camaraderie! Feeling of accomplishment! Helping end Batten!
We love being able to support the Bensons and their cause. It’s an amazing event and well-orchestrated. The staff and volunteers are so supportive.
I can hardly say enough about last night. It is truly hard to put into words, but it will remain one of my most treasured memories. I was explaining to someone today about the “energy, community, excitement fun and HOPE” and it was truly difficult if you were not a party of it.
I know I speak for the team when I tell you that we love being a part of such a cause so very dear to our hearts. We love the idea that we can make a real difference.
The first few exchange stations were great; it was awesome having all of those kids there! The atmosphere at the run is so positive, and we enjoy it so much.
It was really special. It may have been because the kids on the course were SO ADORABLE! Or could it have been the most AMAZING exchange points ever? I was blown away. That just made it so special. What a wonderful tradition. I’m still reeling from it.
Having the cards and pictures for the kids with Batten Disease at the station was great, and we loved the stickers and signs with the inspirational quotes! The views are amazing, and it really is an incredible event!
I’m so honored to be able to run for your foundation and to be a part of the BEST RTTS team! It is an incredible journey that we all go through together, from training together after school and on weekends to spending all day and night together on the bus. It’s such an important team building event for me. It’s pretty much the most exciting thing I do all year.
Words cannot accurately describe the journey I took this weekend. I am still riding high on emotions and adrenaline. One of the most amazing things I have ever been a part of. I cannot wait to do it again next year!
It’s great being a part of a community of people who push themselves mentally and physically while striving to make a real difference.
