The two largest teams at this event were Team Teague and L3 and we proudly wore our shirts for both of these teams. Doug and Matt were on Team Teague. Teague is Matt's friend that he met through baseball who recently had a brain tumor. Praise God they were able to remove the tumor and after proton radiation his scans look good!! It meant a lot to participate in the walk with Teague and his family and the rest of the Hooks baseball team!
Marlie and I walked for the L3 team, Live. Love. Landon. Landon Ahrendt fought a tough battle with rhabdomyosarcoma, which is a rare soft tissue cancer. He went to heaven in May of this year and the L3 Foundation has been going strong to continue to help others kids fighting cancer. What I love about this Foundation is that it's run by kids, Landon's friends and family. Landon's older sister Teagan dances at Marlie's dance studio. Marlie fell in love with Teagan a couple of years ago when she was helping in one of her summer classes. We are so blessed to know Teagan who is amazingly beautiful inside and out. And you should see this girl dance!! We were honored to be walking for Landon and his family!
Maybe both my kids will take after their Daddy and be runners after all. Matt with his intense desire to finish and Marlie with her amazing running form! It sure doesn't come from Momma!!
