A Broad Street success
My cousin, Meghan, finished Philadelphia's Broad Street Run on Sunday, clocking across the finish line at 1:35:50.
The 10-mile run that brought out 26,900 people helped support the American Cancer Society.
Meghan ran in honor of her uncle, friend and my mom - all who passed away from cancer. The run actually took place on my mom's birthday, so it was a fitting tribute.
Meghan raised $1,283 for the cause. She began with a goal of raising $500, but found so much support that in the end she more than doubled her amount.
Here's what she had to say about the experience, "I am truly inspired by everyone who supported me and this cause. I ran strong for those who suffer from or lost their battle with cancer. I ran strong with your strength and the belief that together we can make a difference. Thank you."
