Christi-Anne Beatty, an 11-year-old ninth grader at Covington Latin, came to Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure to help her mother, Angeline Beatty, on the volunteer team. But something in the air told Christi that she was really there to run in honor of a friend who had a brain tumor.

Christi was wearing jeans, not the best attire for running, but that didn’t stop her from turning in a time of 22:49.4. She sprinted across the finish line in first place among females and in eighth place overall. A total of 120 runners competed, 64 of them female. Paul Markus finished first among males with a time of 18:05.2.

Congratulations, Christi-Anne! The Brain Tumor Center applauds you and thanks you for reminding us all to seize the day — carpe diem!
