When I asked for people to dedicate a day of running to Tess Fraser was instantly asking if I could run for her mother. I did not have the privilege of meeting Tess' mom but judging from the woman she raised she had to have been a great woman!
"This is my favorite picture of me and her. It was at my baby shower when I was pregnant with Patrick. Such a fun time for both of us. 14 months after this picture she was diagnosed and gone 8 months later. I’ve met many others on this journey that I honor through advocacy, but this beauty is my true “why” 💙"
Tess has not only been a true advocate for those fighting colorectal cancer but an amazing friend to my cousin and supporter of this run. It is a true honor to recognize both of these amazing women!
