100 Mile Ruck – Eric Chatelle
I have signed up for this fundraiser challenge to honor my brother “Ryan” who has Down Syndrome. When Ryan was 6 years old he was diagnosed with Leukemia and successfully fought the disease for 6 years. It was through the support of programs similar to “Why Me” our family was able to persevere through a difficult time. Having first hand witnessed the challenges cancer can have on a family, the benefits of a support system and charity helped us win the fight. This said, I would like to pay it forward and contribute to helping families in need who are facing similar challenges that Ryan and our family endured. Ryan is now 39 years old and a great uncle to his 4 nieces!
