Here's What's Happening
On March 24, 2020, Race Director Ta'Mara Aarin-Anderson suffered a stroke. After 2 1/2 weeks in a rehab hospital, she returned home to begin her audous recovery. There is no reasonable explanation why this would happen to such a young, healthy, athletic, Badwater-135 bound woman with no pre-existing risk factors.
An experience like this, combined with social isolation from the COVID-19 restrictions puts enormous strain on Ta'Mara and Mike, who is her only caregiver right now. Additionally, their finances have been hit with unexpected medical expenses and loss of income due to COVID.
Everyone who knows Ta'Mara knows how much she loves the people in her running community and that's where you come in. Let's celebrate this friendship and our good wishes for her complete recovery as well as donate a little money by joining our Virtual Race to support Ta'Mara. Just knowing that you are running a few miles dedicated
to her will mean so much to her.
Let's do this!
