Michael, Leah Connor’s Irish brother-in-law, died from relapsed childhood leukemia on St. Patrick’s Day 2003. Aileen, our Irish grandmother affectionately known as GG, died from lung cancer on July 18, 2012.
Ten years ago, we deemed ourselves "TWINS RUN IN OUR FAMILY" and joined Team Lemon so we could run their first Bank of America Chicago Marathon together in his memory to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
Over the years, we’ve continued to run together (Boston Marathon, runDisney, Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, Charlottesville Women's Four Miler) and solo (Twins Run 50K, Philadelphia Marathon, Blue Cross Broad Street Run, Charlottesville Track Club, Charlottesville Speedsters, Charlottesville Ten Miler, Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon, The San Francisco Marathon, Marine Corps Marathon) to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. As of today, we’ve raised over $7,000 in memory of Michael and GG.
We’re extremely grateful for your ongoing support and generous donations over the years.
If you can, please consider donating $10 to mark our 10th anniversary with Team Lemon.
Thank you. ☘️
