Thanks Joanne!!

Greg decided to run with her towards the end of the race...

Another member of Ally's Army....doing great things on her behalf!!! A good friend of ours, Joanne George, went all the way to San Diego to run the Team in Training Marathon in honor of Ally. Joanne and Greg have been friends of ours for a long time...Greg studied in Europe with Jerad for a semester and they became fast friends. The greatest thing about this story is that Joanne has overcome some pretty serious medical issues herself. After having brain surgery, I wasn't sure if she would be up to running least not 13 miles...but just like Ally she persevered through it all and got back into her training. Her and Greg raised thousands of dollars for LLS and travelled across the country for her race. (and it was her birthday too) We just can't thank you enough for doing this for our daughter. We have so many kind members of the Army out there doing so many good things in her name. We love you Jo! And Greg.


  1. How just completely, totally, incredibly awesome of Joanne!

  2. Thanks for the shout out, Janel. It was our pleasure to help out the Army (and LLS) even if in this small way. I can tell you that I was so inspired when attending the marathon and seeing all the Purple TNT race shirts that I 'plan' to do one (half) next year. So, the fundraising will continue.
    Greg & Joanne
