Heroes come in all shapes and sizes! Ours just happens to be a pint sized pistol named Emily Lawrence. Emily is a typical "almost teenager" in so many ways. She loves her friends, and horseback riding, is the "go to girl" on the soccer field, and can carry a country tune with the best of them! Always thinking of others, this tiny girl with a big heart is growing her hair for “Locks of Love", and speaks publicly to create awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. Diagnosed with CF at an early age, Emily and her family know the challenges of this disease far too well. Even through her daily regime of medicines, experimental drugs, and therapies, regular doctor appointments, and at times extensive hospital stays, Emily Lawrence maintains a spunk and spirit that is an example for all who know her! Last spring when her lung function began to drop, we decided to get up and get moving for Emily! We started running...and running....and running. We trained through April, May, and June while Emily began the first of many "rounds" of antibiotics. We ran through July, August, and September, as she tried to gain weight and continued her therapy. We have kept running, into October and now November as Emily, once again, struggles to regain her lung function and faces another hospitalization. On November 17, 2012 we are running for Emily. We are running the Thunder Road Marathon. Now here's how you can help. Help us help Emily by making a generous donation for the miles we will run on November 17th. (through clicking the yellow "Give" button on the link above) Your gift will go directly to assist Emily's family with on-going medical expenses. We are counting on your support! Hope to see you at the race. I know if at all possible Emily will be waiting for us at the finish line...and that's enough to keep us running…and running...and running!--Joni Case, Maggie Nash, and Susan Green
