Thank You From The Skandera’s

I personally could not be prouder of how the Redwood Empire running community has dug so deep to help one of our former runners in her battle with cancer.
Here is the story if you missed it. Skandera battling cancer
So far your support has raised enough to cover the first year and a half of wages she will lose and I still hope we can all help cover even longer.

I received this note from her Dad, Harry Skandera, who is still active in the Santa Rosa running scene.

Dear Jim,

Would you please post the following note to you and all those who have so generously contributed prayers, kind thoughts, and financial support to our daughter Hope.

“Our entire family wants to express our sincere thanks for posting Hope’s situation on the Empire Running Site. The support from all over the country and particularly the Redwood Empire has been deeply moving. The contributions, prayers and words of encouragement are a meaningful daily experience for each of us, but most importantly for Hope.”
