One morning my mom came across a website to sign up for a 5k run to donate to cancer. As soon as my mom heard this idea, she loved it. She told me that she wanted to do it, and so did I. I've been doing it for three years now and every year I do it I get really excited. I mean, let's be honest: who's sad when they are helping people with cancer?! You can either run or walk, but I run every year. It's good because you're exercising AND helping cure cancer! When the run starts they close all of West Chester streets so we can run on them. It's fun because throughout the way people who live in West Chester are outside in their front yards cheering us on. This makes us feel good about what we are doing. I'm glad I do this run every year because it makes me feel good about myself because I'm helping people with cancer.
