Why I Run to the Sun
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!
We love the way people come together to support a great cause and have a blast doing 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 transition points were “over the top”. The generosity of the people and their spots was the most encouraging and uplifting thing I have experienced in a long time.
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.
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.
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.
The Benson family is so inspirational to all of us. This is the best event we participate in. Thank you so much for being so strong and creating Beyond Batten Disease Foundation to make a difference.
This past weekend is one I look forward to every year. I feel especially proud because I am one of the few that can say I’ve run it every year since the beginning. Without fail, I have cried at the end of my second leg every time because I’m done, and because I’m loving every minute of the night.
It’s great being a part of a community of people who push themselves mentally and physically while striving to make a real difference.
