Why I Run to the Sun
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.
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 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.
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 unity of everyone working towards a common goal was inspiring!
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!
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!
Great cause and all the people in the event, teams and volunteers, make it a ton of fun!
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.
It’s great being a part of a community of people who push themselves mentally and physically while striving to make a real difference.
