      Our Amazing Fighters & Good to be Me: 1-Miler- Virtual Run/Walk

      Our Amazing Fighters (OAF)  and author Jessica Parham, of Good to be Me Book are teaming up to rise money to fight pediatric cancer. This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY event. We encourage walking, running strollers, wheelchairs, walkers, bikes and more!

      Our Amazing Fighters started in 2014 and is "committed to raising awareness, sharing stories, advocating on capital hill, and spreading joy to kids and families in the fight against pediatric cancer". 100% of proceeds from this virtual run will go directly to OAF to provide care packages and support to kids fighting cancer and their families. As well funding for the advocacy to ensure that these kids and families voices are heard. 

      Good to be Me (GTBM)  is a book that gives parents the opportunity to have an open narrative with their kids about differences, disabilities, race, body types, kindness and more. Kids may be able to see themselves, a family member/friend for the first time in a book!
