In Kate's Honor


Less than a year ago, Kate Voth's hard-fought battle with cancer ended. During her treatments, we witnessed her determination and tenacity in action as she fought to limit cancer's affect on her daily life. Her positive attitude and unrelenting nature is what I think about when I run. I'm not a great runner. My idea of exerting myself is a 2-miler, but Kate constantly challenged herself and so in her honor, I will do the same. Dang. I'm nearly talking myself into a full marathon here, but I probably need to see if I can get through this half-marathon first.


I'm working hard, now, running regularly so that I'll be ready. Sometimes as I run, I pass by deer or birds or old men or children. In all of these things, I am reminded of the beauty in life and of all the ways Kate encouraged us with her gentle words and supportive smile. I miss her.


Team Kate was formed to make a difference in the fight against cancer. Please consider supporting me as I run in Kate's honor. No donation is too small. 


The LIVESTRONG Foundation serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against this disease that is now the world's leading cause of death. The money I raise will go to support programs and services, which inspire and empower people affected by cancer.  


Thank you!
