Thank you for joining me in my journey to conquer my first marathon in honour of my uncle Crispin.
We lost Crispin suddenly as a result of heart failure a little over a year ago, but it still seems like only yesterday. He was the joker of the family with the humour that made every person he met laugh so loud, and had a heart so large it welcomed everyone. The family is still navigating this loss, and I've chosen to focus my energy associated with taking on this challenge in his memory.
He was an amazing son, brother, husband, father, father-in-law, uncle, colleague, friend, and overall human being, who is missed by so many people every single day.
I chose the American Heart Association with the aim of preventing other families from losing loved ones so suddenly and so young. My aim is the raise $2,000, and I appreciate every dollar that you are able to give to this worthwhile cause.
