This year will mark my 6th time running the Boilermaker. I love the community aspect of the race - it's what brings me back every year. A mentor of mine reached out to me with the idea of running for the JM Chubbuck Foundation, and I immediately jumped on board. This organization and it's ideals mean a lot to me and my city. One of my best friends lost his father recently to cancer, so I try to take any opportunity I can to help out the families of victims. I hope that, through my running, I can help spread awareness of the Foundation and all the good it does for the local communities.
