|Amazing captions all around!|
I met so many inspiring people at this event. Survivors, family of survivors, people still in the throws of their battle and those that are there at the UCF to support all of the above.
|Jessica and I. I had to run over and have my photo taken with her. Love that girl!|
To hear Jessica Protasio tell her story and how the UCF was a true godsend for her brought most of us to tears. She is a vibrant young woman who had already lost both of her parents and was in a new town when she got the news that she had liver cancer. Thankfully someone turned her onto UCF and they seem to have become like her family. Someone from UCF was there with her all along the way helping her NAVIGATE the process and holding her hand through the treatments. This year she had her FIRST clean scan.. A true VICTORY.. and she continues to be a large part of UCF helping others as they helped her.
|Vanessa and I. One of the ORIGINAL of the Rev3 family.|
We heard from Doug Ulman and many other amazing people over the course of the night. We got to celebrate victories and mourn losses. We got to feel the hope in the room and hear about the mission of the Ulman Cancer Fund from the mouth of it's founder and those that make it such a wonderful place doing great great things for the fight against cancer.
|I really like this! Go UCF Go!|
I hold each of these people and my team mates close to my heart as I power forward in the fundraising and training.
I was so excited to see my 'other' family again. We had a blast!!!!! Only a few more months and I'll get to see them all again!
And a little PS. I gotta brag on the Rev3 crew a bit now. They received the Partner Award from UCF for all the amazing things they have done for UCF to include consulting with them on the past Half Full races, partnering for the 2012 Rev3 Half Full race and now the Run Across America. I couldn't be more proud to support such an amazing group of people. Thanks again for the opportunity to be included in the awesomeness!
