Dawn HeringRunning last year's NYC Marathon with Team Reeve was the most exciting and moving running experience I've had. It was such an honor to support the Reeve Foundation and run in honor of my father. In June 1994, my dad sustained a spinal cord injury after his truck was hit from behind by a tractor trailer. I run for myself, for my health, for peace of mind, for wonderful charities, but more than that I've always run for MY DAD!!!

I run to make him proud. I run to let him know that I see the bigger picture – that life is precious and can change in an instant – so part of the way I live it to the fullest is through running. My dad inspires me, and I know that my running has inspired my dad. By joining together and working toward a higher goal, by looking beyond our immediate situation, by supporting the Foundation we love, together, we've lifted each other up.
