“Run like the wind, Jamie!” dad’s voice would bellow across Detweiller Park during cross-country season.

The phrase was given meaning for him by a developmentally delayed boy he coached on the soccer field who, despite physical and mental challenges, would joyously yell, “I’m going to run like the wind for you, Mr. Graves!”

To dad, this was a statement of having courage and showing heart – even in the face of overwhelming adversity.  And it is with heart that I will be running in dad’s memory at the Chicago Marathon onSunday, October 12 to raise funds for the Kidney Cancer Association. This race is both a tribute to a man who fought to live as long as he could and a thank you to an organization that provided tremendous support during his seven-year battle.

I would be much obliged for any support you could provide in helping me reach my fundraising goal.

 I also hope you will join the Graves Family Cheering Team on race day, as I’d love to hear a chorus of “Run like the wind, Jamie” throughout the course.

 Best,  Jamie
