Towards the end of 2016, Systemware, Inc. had a fundraiser for the 1 Million 4 Anna Foundation. Employees were challenged to take on something related to 12/12, a significant date in the foundation’s origin. Two employees decided to “run for research.” After thoughtful consideration and research, they found a race on the 12th day 12 months away…but it was a marathon. Robert stated, “I thought if those kids can fight for their lives, then I can struggle through and train for and run a marathon to raise awareness for Ewing sarcoma.”
Running a marathon was completely new for both Robert and Brandon, but they were excited to take on the challenge. They will be running the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon in Las Vegas on Sunday, November 12th!! “Training has been long and hard, and will continue to get harder in the weeks to come. With each run we think about the kids and all of their struggles, and it makes our struggles to run seem to pale in comparison.”
Thank you for supporting Robert and Brandon and their marathon endeavor!
