Got an email from Mark Knigga who is running the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon(IMM) this Saturday November 1 in Honor of Lauren Hill. Please help Mark raise $22,000 for Lady Tiger 22 and show your support at mile 22 at the IMM! Here is main part of the email:
Lauren and I live in the same town (Lawrenceburg, IN). She is 19 years old and was diagnosed last year with DIPG. DIPG is a cancer of the brain with a 0% survival rate that afflicts predominantly young children. Lauren is not expected to survive until the end of the year.
Lauren is a student and basketball player at the College of Mount St. Joe in Cincinnati, Ohio. She will be participating in her first and only college game on Sunday November 2nd.
On Saturday, I will be running the IMM (Indianapolis Monumental Marathon) in Lauren’s Honor. My goal is to raise $22,000. I chose this amount because it was Lauren's uniform number in high school.
I have included the link below for the web site with additional information.
