The Group's Purpose

On May 16th, Kathy’s sister Rose will be running the Sun Mountain 80Km race in Winthrop, Washington. This will be the fourth ultra marathon Rose has run, and while she’s nervous for the challenge, she’s also very excited to run up and over Washington’s Cascade Mountains. “It’s supposed to be gorgeous!” Rose told me, “Kind of like British Columbia’s Okanagan area. It’s meant to be single track, meadows… Very, very beautiful.”

When I asked Rose if she would be wearing her Save Your Skin jersey in the event, she answered “Always!” without skipping a beat. Rose, the inspiration behind the first Save Your Skin jersey, has done upwards of thirty races in the bright yellow and orange uniform. She was also quick to point out that she was travelling to Seattle to do the race with three other friends who are heavily supportive of Save Your Skin. With evident pride in her voice, she told me “we’re all there on behalf of the foundation.”

Rose, though she has been training five times a week for this race, is still nervous about her longest run yet. “I’m scared! But I’m doing it to challenge myself, because at least I have control over the challenges I take on, versus people with cancer don’t have control of that challenge.”

While Rose relied on running as a source of comfort while Kathy was sick, she now uses it to spread the word about Save Your Skin by wearing her jersey, and telling fellow racers about the foundation. Having done so many runs wearing the Save Your Skin jersey, it’s clear she is proud of her sister Kathy, and passionate about this cause.
