Campaign: 2019 Detroit Marathon
Team: 2019 Venture - Detroit

Laura Perkins Mitchell

This is my second year training for the Detroit international half marathon and helping to raise money for the Pokot tribe.
Last year I was able to train with my amazing team and help with fundraising, but unfortunately was unable to participate in the Marathon. About 12 weeks before the race I was diagnosed with Stage IIB melanoma and had to have surgery to remove the cancer in my leg a week before the race.
But this year I am back, I am free of disease and I am ready to continue my journey with my team,
training and helping to raise money to put in wells for the Pokot.
