January 6th – Indiana Runner to Donate 10% of Distance Showcase Profit to Lindsey Marriott and Family
For those who haven’t already heard, one of Indiana’s most promising young athletes, Lindsey Marriott, a Sophomore at Leo High School in Northeast Indiana is currently recovering at a Florida hospital after a frightening series of events on December 31st, 2014.
While vacationing with her family, Lindsey began suffering side effects of what would eventually become a brain aneurysm and require immediate brain surgery. Doctors were able to stop the bleeding and she is currently in stable condition as she continues to rest in the hospital.
Already a highly decorated athlete in Indiana, Lindsey finished 48th this past fall at the IHSAA Cross Country State Meet. She was also 23rd at the State Meet as a freshman and 17th last year in the 3200m run at the IHSAA State Track Meet.
Updates on Lindsey’s condition are being posted on a facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/LindseyMarriottPrayer
Friends and family are also looking to raise donations and support the Marriott family through a 5k run and 1 mile walk here in Fort Wayne this coming Saturday. More information about the event and how to donate can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/724128964322863/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular&source=1
In an effort to support the Marriott family, Indiana Runner will be donating 10% of our profit from February 7th’s Indiana Runner Distance Showcase to their fund. We all wish her a successful recovery and our thoughts are with the Marriott family.
