Julianne's Rock 'N' Roll Half Marathon San Francisco

San Francisco is the city where my beautiful mother grew up, went to school and started to raise her own family. I love this city where my parents met and fell in love. I ran the San Francisco Marathon in July of 2011, so it has taken me quite awhile to get back into competition  mode. I’ve either had injuries or faced other obstacles that have prevented me from getting serious about other events. My sister asked me to join her on April 8, 2018 to run the Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon in San Francisco and I certainly could not say ‘no’ to that proposition. The obstacles that I’ve incurred pale in comparison to what my fighter of a mother endured during her illness.

I run this event in honor of my mother, Clara Basques, who fought bravely against multiple myeloma.  I am encouraged by the strides research has made since my mother’s diagnosis. I want other families to reap the benefits that the International Myeloma Foundation has provided through education to promote early diagnosis, overall patient support, and global awareness.
