Run Dedication for Shawn Burris

I have the special honor of dedicating this year's 26.2 mile Columbus Marathon race to the memory of Shawn Burris. He was a classmate of mine, and at a school like ours (Utica High)...everyone was friends with everyone. He took his life in April of 2009, and is missed dearly by all of his family and friends. He has two sons, Austin and Draven...who both adored and thought the world of him. Shawn was literally everyone's friend, and would help anyone in need. He was always the life of the party. He was a tremendous father, son, brother, and friend. My prayers go out to all of you today. I knew I had to do something special for Shawn...we all grew up and went our separate ways...as life has us do, but I will never forget the wonderful years I spent with all of my classmates. Thank you Jackie and Margie for allowing me the honor! Please share and God bless. www.facebook.com/runhopelive #rundedication
