Why I Run to the Sun
The unity of everyone working towards a common goal was inspiring!
Great cause and all the people in the event, teams and volunteers, make it a ton of fun!
Every year I feel this connection that’s hard to explain. A connection to my coworkers/friends, a connection to the running community, a connection to making a difference, a connection to nature, a connection to your family, a connection to myself.
It was such an amazing experience that I have not stopped talking about! I will for sure be back next year.
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.
Bensons, you are never alone on this journey. Although we may not always have the answers to help or know the challenges that come, we run for you and your family during the Run to the Sun, and on many other running adventures we take.
We love the way people come together to support a great cause and have a blast doing 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!
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.
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.
