Looking back I don't know if it was the inspiration of a courageous little girl who lived so close by, who was treated at the very same hospital, or our continued commitment in a world where it's hard to keep commitments, but I know that she and her siblings have gotten the message -- "when life gives you lemons, do something about it."
In commemoration of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month I have enlisted four of my friends to join me as we "Run the Grand." What does that mean you ask? The five of us will run an entire marathon together -- through the Grand Canyon. Yes, that Grand Canyon, the very one you're thinking of, in Arizona.
