This team is running for hope in memory of our daughter, MaryElle "Elle" Weatherford. Elle was born on September 23, 2010. She was born with the rare heart defect, Truncus Arteriosus. She only lived 8 short months and died June 9, 2011. Elle lived her entire life in the hospital and our family lived in the Ronald McDonald House in Oak Lawn next to the hospital. We truly believe in this charity and what it does for families during the toughest time in their lives. We are running this race in order to help with expenses for the RMH, so they can continue keeping families together in times of crisis.
