Why I Run to the Sun
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.
What an awe-inspiring event and super fun exchange station. We are already looking forward to participating again next 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.
Great cause and all the people in the event, teams and volunteers, make it a ton of fun!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
