Running for a friend with leukemia
The Faries Funeral Home Super Teams are also rallying around a friend who has leukemia, Nick Godwin.
“We are all running for him,” said Timblin.
Godwin, who is now out of the hospital after chemotherapy, is planning to participate in the Mud Run as The Thing on one of the Super Teams.
“It’s a great cause,” said Godwin. “It really shows that people out there care. It’s amazing how many people come out for this.”
As far as his teammates, Godwin said, “It’s a great thing to have friends like this.”
He also thanked the event founders, the Ferrara family, for all they’ve done raise money for leukemia research.
Godwin was diagnosed with leukemia, a cancer of the blood, in July 2010. He spent more than a month in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy and continues to take medication.
“I tell everyone, ‘I feel fine,’ but there’s a lot of fatigue. Your muscles ache,” he said. “But I’m lucky. It’s the people in the hospital that are going through the worst of it. I say prayers for them.”
