I am Chairman of the Race for My Sister - Errin Dean
I was the 2006 Chairman for the Race for the Cure I did this in memory of my sister Kelli Binsky. I have run for the past 7 years because she was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was just 32 years old. I ran in the Race for the Cure on my wedding day, September 25, 1999, into her arms at the finish line. For the next few years I was able to run the 5K race and then run over to the finish line of the Family 2K to meet her as she finished with the rest of my family. The last two years of her life she completed the 2K in her wheelchair. Kelli passed away on August 19, 2003, at 37 years of age. She left behind a five year old son and loving family. I run every year for her, and to raise awareness and funds so that others do not suffer from this disease. I know we will find a cure sometime during my lifetime. All I need to do on October 7th is put one foot in front of the other and keep going until I cross that finish line. When Kelli was alive I used to picture me stomping on all on her cancer cells each time my foot hit the ground. Now that she has passed away, I continue to picture me stomping on those cells for all those who are fighting today. Please run with me this year and help find a cure for this devastating disease. See you October 20th!
