We wanted something fun (not too dramatic) that had a little ring to it. We tried to do some alliteration...played around with a few things...laughed...and we came up with:
Sweatin' for Sammy
So, whether people will be running or walking...it's all because they love little Sammy. Even if they don't know her but only come because a friend roped them in...that friend is coming and still sweatin' for Sammy. Right? Anyway. We're excited to get going. I hope this all works out.
Last night thinking about it, I got a little emotional thinking about all of us there, for Samantha. I was telling Marcus some of the updates from our friend who is organizing it, telling him it didn't look so good. He said, "Jenny, can you imagine it though? I mean, everyone would be there for her...cheering her on...wearing shirts for her...it's something we would NEVER forget." It would be pretty amazing. Lately, we've read some information about Samantha's diagnosis and her profile match up with some things related to early death. It's been hard for us. We've had to rely on our faith (and doctor's opinion -- who can't ever be 100% anyway) to find peace about everything. And, let me clarify here: We're not expecting her to die tomorrow or even next year. She very well would be a young adult if she matches up with these cases. So, last night I was thinking about that -- and if we were able to do this run, how cool of a memory would that be one day? I don't know. I said we didn't want our little logo to be dramatic, and listen to me now. Anyway...
We'll keep you all posted on if/when this thing goes down.
