Why I Run to the Sun
We love the way people come together to support a great cause and have a blast doing it!
It’s great being a part of a community of people who push themselves mentally and physically while striving to make a real difference.
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.
It was an amazing experience. The exchange stations were fun and motivating. Running under the stars was an unforgettable memory.
What an awe-inspiring event and super fun exchange station. We are already looking forward to participating again next year!
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.
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.
As I wearily began to trudge up the first hill I could see the dawn breaking and something overtook my body that I cannot explain. I flew those last few miles faster then I have ever run for my sweet Christiane!
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.
What a unique event. I love running through night in the Hill Country.
