Karen, John and Taryn are running the 2013 Chicago Marathon in honor of our cousin Tyler and our good friend Cybil.

Tyler is the inspiration for a charity that provides therapy equipment to children with special needs so they can reach their full potential and enjoy a better quality of life. The name of that charity is Tyler's Gift Foundation.

We are honored to run for Tyler and his mother, Christine, as she continues her quest to make the everyday challenges of a special needs child a little less challenging.  Please visit to read Tyler's story.

Cybil Eyerman is a beautiful, healthy, strong, yoga warrior, Mother of three.  A good friend of our from our days in Chicago, she was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer last year. Now living in Maui, she has been fighting through numerous expensive treatments and procedures that frequently have her traveling throughout the states (very expensive from Maui).
