Brit Vermeire – 2nd Year Runner

People ask “Why do you run?” The answer is simple – ‘I run for the Kids. They can’t and I can simple as that.’ In all honesty it’s not about running it’s about fundraising. Sometimes it can be hard to ask friends and families for money but when you believe so deeply in the cause you are fundraising for it makes that much easier. I know that 100% of the money I raise goes to those kids. That makes this all worth it.

This is my second year running the St. Jude Quincy to Peoria Run and I plan to be involved as long as possible. I am also on the Social Media – Website Team and the Runner Recruitment Team. I’m truly passionate about this cause and enjoy being involved in every aspect of it.

One month from today till we Run!!!
