Ella's Race: Fighting Brain Cancer

Hey folks! Just wanted to let you know about my 10K this Saturday. It's called Ella's Race. 

This event is very dear to my heart. In 2008, Ella Newmiller was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of brain cancer. There is no cure -- not yet, at least -- for diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, and Ella passed away on Feb. 8, 2012. Here is a sweet tribute her parents published on YouTube. 

If you are able, please join us this Saturday at 8:00 at the North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh to celebrate the memory of Ella and raise funds for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. This will be the 4th time I've participated in this event and each time I look forward to meeting Ella's parents, who are committed Christians. For details, please go here. They also have a  5K option plus a 1-mile fun run for the kids. 

Thanks for listening.
