Friends of Carol Welsh - Super Survivor
This year's race is dedicated to Cole O'Shea who died in March. Cole was kind, friendly, talented, and a champion of social justice causes. Cole and her wonderful husband Thomas and children Sabine and Henry are long time team members.
Carol is a Super Sister, Super Friend, and Super Survivor of a recurrent ependymoma brain and spine tumor.
Our wonderful dad called Carol "Super" right from the start - Super Baby, then Super Girl, then Super anything she happened to be doing! So calling her a Super Survivor - 19 years now - was a "no-brainer" (sorry, Carol.)
Since our first Race in 2004, our wonderful friends (including fellow Survivors Katie Gorman, Beth Beardsley, Erin Kalan, LJ Avalos, Margo Robbins and Don Young) have joined us to raise more than $175,000 for Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and the National Brain Tumor Society, organizations dedicated to finding a cure by providing research funding for the brain tumor community.

We're partial of course, but Carol is an absolutely amazing woman and we love her very much. You can read her ependymoma journey on her website: http://www.adultependymomabraintumor.com/OnMyMind.html
See you on May 5 and THANK YOU!
