I Run 4 Aaron

A few weeks ago I came across an organization called I Run 4. IR4 is a group of special needs children and adults who are unable to run and are signed up to be matched with a runner who is willing to dedicate runs to the child/adult.

This was taken from the IR4 website… “The mental and emotional encouragement for both runner and honorary runner is proving to be a whole new level of motivation and awareness. Runners are able to find a whole new sense of purpose in their running while sharing who they are running for and bringing awareness to diseases and disabilities of all types”.

I was matched with a special little boy named Aaron. He just turned 1 and has Cornelia de Lange Syndrome.

I will probably never meet little Aaron, but I have already started to develop a bond with his mother and it is such an honor to run for him.

If you are interested in becoming a runner for IR4 or if you know of a child or adult with special needs who would like to have someone run for them, check out the website http://www.whoirun4.com where you will find more information about the organization as well as information on how to sign up to be matched.
