Racers Raise $10,000 at Rock ‘n Sole Milwaukee
June 23rd, 2016 by Jennifer Price
Team CHM’s journey to save sight at Rock ‘n Sole Milwaukee brought us many steps closer to a treatment and a cure for CHM. Team members raised over $10,000 while conquering the heat and half marathon, quarter marathon, or 5K distances.
Over 20 Team CHMers laced up their sneakers for a reason. Racer Barb Cameron set an ambitious goal of racing for a reason and gathering a group of friends and family to join her for a very special reason:
“I am committing to run the Rock ‘n Sole Half Marathon on Saturday, June 11th for the CRF. I know it will not be easy and I will have to train long and hard to do this but I personally want to challenge myself.
OKAY, here are some of the thoughts running through my head… in the last 2-1/2 years I have had to depend on others for many things, including rides. But this is something I can still do by myself… just put on running shoes and run. I want to do this for independence, strength and confidence in myself as much as it is for the CRF.”
In addition to racing, Team CHM had a dedicated group of volunteers join us on race day, manning an aid station during the race, keeping athletes hydrated while showing off their Team CHM pride.
