Running Against Cancer at the Chicago Marathon

In addition to running the Chicago Marathon in a personal best time of 3:26, Carly raised over $1000 for the American Cancer society.

At the pre-race expo, charity runners were able to post a tribute plaque naming who they were running for. Here is the one Carly posted in support of her mom, grandmother, and my dad.
