Team Ohana Running The LA Marathon For The Wendy Walk Charity!

We are so excited to relay the marathon on March 19, 2017 in support of the Wendy Walk.  My dad and I will both run 13.1 miles to complete this 26.2 mile race throughout Los Angeles.  We chose to run for a purpose this year and not only work toward being the strongest versions of ourselves, but also help make a difference in our community.  

We chose to partner with the Wendy Walk, an organization that was started by our family-friends the Landes's, after Wendy Landes was diagnosed with Liposarcoma Cancer.  We are running to build strength for those families and friends affected by this disease and to create hope for those battling it.  We appreciate any size of donation to help us reach our goal.  Let's spread the word and make a difference in 2017!

You can read about the inspiring organization below:  

Wendy Walk was founded in 2010 by Ali, Matt, and Jackie Landes to raise funds and awareness for Liposarcoma, a rare form of cancer that their mother, Wendy, was diagnosed with. Despite her tragic passing in March of 2013, Wendy's legacy has been kept alive through the organization and continues to be an inspiration to others battling the disease. With a profoundly personal understanding of how cancer impacts the entire family system, Wendy Walk is committed to helping families cope with the unique challenges sarcoma brings.

Wendy Walk works to provide courage, strength and hope to families and patients battling sarcoma through charitable social and athletic events held all over the country. The organization's most notable events are walks which take place each spring in New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, and Park City.

Through the walks, supporters have contributed over $2.25 million. The funds raised allows the Wendy Walk to continually fulfill its mission to find and develop new innovative treatments for sarcoma and serve as a valuable resource for those impacted by this rare disease.

Wendy Walk continues to send strong messages of hope and encouragement to Sarcoma patients and develop a larger sense of community and eradicate isolation.
