ORLANDO, Fla. â€” Minda Lemmonâ€™s marathon journey was much more than the 26.2-mile trek this January.
Her journey began over a year ago, when she decided to run a marathon in honor of her neighbor, Jane Goble, who was diagnosed with Leukemia around Christmastime of 2013.
Over the last year, Lemmon has been training and fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), a nonprofit organization that raises funds for cancer research.
Lemmonâ€™s goal was to raise $5,000 for LLS. She reached her goal the weekend before the race, raising $5,125 for the Indiana chapter.
