    Focusing on the Good

    There's no such thing as an easy way to find out a loved one has cancer, but Lincoln and Lisa got a double blindside that feels especially brutal. "She felt a little bump on her shoulder — smaller than a pea," Lincoln says, "and she decided to go have it checked out. And the doctor that looked at her said, 'Well, the good news is that skin cancer is one of the most curable cancers there is.'"
    As it turns out, though, this diagnosis was way off. Lincoln and Lisa's story is tragic, but beautifully told.

    Paying It Forward

    Paying It Forward

    In the Spring of 2015, Teresa was not doing well. “I was going through a difficult, painful, heartbreaking divorce,” she says, “and I was wallowing in self-pity and self-doubt.”
    Teresa’s brother, Adam, thought what Teresa needed was to challenge herself. According to Teresa, Adam said, “You need to figure out who you are. You need a challenge; you need something that's going to push you to your limits and really help you find that inner strength again.”
    “There's nothing else that will help you do that,” said Adam, “except for running.”
    “I just laughed in his face,” says Teresa. “I hadn’t run since junior high PE class.”
    Now — years later and having run multiplehalf marathons, Teresa thinks that Adam was right. And she’s paying that important insight forward in a big way.

    The Reluctant Runner

    Chris Bennett is an athletic guy…but surfing is his sport of choice. He has bad knees. He’s never run a half-marathon before. He doesn’t even likerunning, to tell the truth.
    And yet, he’s going to run AF Canyon Run Against Cancer half marathon this year. He’s got his reasons. For example, 97thFloor — the company he’s CEO of — is the title sponsor of the event. And more importantly, he’s got a plan for beating the COO of the company through some very intense training.
    And mostimportantly, he’s doing this race for a reason a lot of us can identify with: cancer has hit too close to home, too many times.

    Run Jane, Run!

    Run Jane, Run!

    For most of us, events like the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer are all about completingthe distance we choose. The victory comes in the form of crossing the finish line at all, or perhaps in finishing with a personal best.
    There are a few people, however, for whom this is truly a race. Jane Durfey, a three-time podium finisher, is definitely one of these few.
    Even so, however, that’s not why this is her favorite race. Not even close.

    Running and Remembering Together - Jayci's Family's Story

    No family wants to find whether they have the resilience and strength to catalyze loss into legacy.
    But that’s the challenge Jayci’s family has, and together — with their extended family — they gather each year at the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer. There, they run together and walk together, talk and listen together, and remember Jayci. 
    All while wearing very cool matching T-shirts.
