Grandma's Marathon 2022

Support Me

Hi all - I am fundraising $500 in memory of my brother, Carter Brandes.  I will be running the 1/2 Marathon at Grandma's in Duluth, MN on June 18th.  

Carter was my little brother and one of my best friends.  He was 19 and he died from suicide on November 28, 2021.  Carter was strong, empathetic, funny, intelligent, and most importantly kindhearted.  He touched so many people in his life and I am truly so proud to always be his big sister.  I wish we had more time, more memories, more everything.  I will run in Carter's memory and to support Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE) to keep awareness for Mental Health and suicide in the forefront, as so many are touched by this.  Please join me in supporting SAVE so we can continue to work together with those of us who have lost someone personally to suicide.  Thank you for your generosity.
