The smiles and tight hugs at the end of a run tells each of us everything we need to know.
Robyn will be running along with her twin autistic sons, Alex and Jamie, in the The Hope Runs Here 13.1 mile Half-Marathon. Proceeds from the race will go to LI2DAY that funds programs that include counseling services specifically designed for children and teens affected by their parent/guardian’
