Eight years later, the run for roses continues

May 15, 2017 - Comments: 0

The eighth annual Run for Roses, hosted May 7th, 2017, promoted cystic fibrosis awareness and research funding. The event was created in honor of Ohio Northern University’s physical therapy graduates Kim and Angela Badertscher.

Angela and Kim were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in 2008. When Angela lost her battle to the disease, her school family was inspired to act. Faculty and students of Ohio Northern’s physical therapy program organized a 5K to honor Angela and her sister Kim, a clinical outreach athletic trainer at Northern.

This is an incredibly hard letter to write. I knew the time would come for me to leave the Northern Review and move on to another project, but now that the time has arrived, I’m deeply saddened to say goodbye to an organization that has been my home for the past four years.
