My name is Peter Brookhart – age 30 from Chicago, IL. In 2018 my wife, Sarah, and I watched the Walt Disney World runDisney marathon during a pivotal point in our life. We were one year into what would be a four year infertility battle to start our family and running was a way to be as healthy as possible and power through the emotional struggles of our journey.
Since then I have completed numerous runDisney challenges, marathons, a 50k ultra and brought our sons, James and Teddy, home in November 2020 and May 2022. As a family that has experience multiple losses to the terrible disease of cancer we decided to center our running journey around fundraising for the American Cancer Society.
We share our stories to help promote healthy life choices and to continue to fight cancer.
