The beginnings.....


This is a picture of the shirt I wore during my first marathon. On the front of the shirt it clearly states " I RUN". On one side of the shirt it states the reasons I run and on the other side it states people I run for. Near my right elbow it says for my father because, "I run for my father" . My father had been fighting cancer for 5 years at that point and was still working a full time job. His conviction and courage inspired me to continue on during my runs. Formyfather.org is dedicated to the memory of my beloved father, Elijah, who will always be by my side.

I looked through several "run for a cause" websites and felt each one was not suited for me. I was looking for something that would offer their participants a more personalized experience. After deciding on blog format for the wanted personalized effect, For My Father was launced September , 06. We currently donate charity donations to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Facility in Seattle, Washington
