A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

MCM 2013: Team Julia

Marc and our friend, Josh, completed this year's Marine Corp Marathon! They ran in Julia's memory as part of Team Trisomy 18. It was a beautiful day--perfect for running the race (I'm told) and perfect for watching the race. The kids and I made signs and took the metro downtown to mile 18 to see Marc and Josh. Seeing the constant stream of runners along the Potomac River or running through the National Mall was really amazing. Thanks to modern technology, we were able to track Marc and know when he would be coming our way. We were all so excited to see them and to see that things were going so well! We are very proud of Marc (and Josh) for running for Julia! And we are thankful to so many who contributed to Team Trisomy 18! Team Julia raised $3,415 (well beyond our $2000 goal!), and the combined 11 members of Team Trisomy 18 raised over $20,000!

Yay! That's exciting how much Marc raised. I know Julie is proud! I was disappointed my dad didn't see Marc in the race but of course I knew that was a slim chance since there are so many runner! My stepmom and sister were cheering from the Roslyn area. :)
