My first meeting of Greg (with Kevin Nickodem) at the Run for the Donuts
My first meeting of Greg (with Kevin Nickodem) at the Run for the Donuts

I'm running the Angels Among Us 5K in memory of Greg Sousa, a friend I met as part of Carolina Godiva Track Club. He passed away of brain cancer on July 14, 2016 at the age of 47.

We first met at Godiva's Run for the Donuts a few years back. I was afraid of doing a team race because I'm so slow; I didn't want to ruin others' chances to win the race with me slowing the team down. Greg was so nice and supportive that he made me feel confident and allowed me to put aside my fear of "being too slow." 

I subsequently got to know him further at other Godiva events. He was always having fun and smiling, and every conversation was a delight. I especially enjoyed running with him and his kids at a few of Godiva's Hard Climb Hill 3-milers. 

If you can, please support this cause by making a small donation ($5, $10, $25, $5000 - just kidding! Ok, maybe not....). But seriously, anything you can give would be very much appreciated. 

P.S. - My father-in-law, Ken Hansley, also died of a brain tumor. His was lymphoma, so in the past I have fundraised for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in his honor and then in his memory. I'm thinking of Ken as well as I write this and will think of him when I run. Love you, dad.
