My 100 Miles For Tanner Project, with its inauspicious start, just got the most wonderful boost: Tutus. For Tanner.

My heart might just burst from the love. Having learned yesterday that Tanner is declining ever more quickly, too quickly, such that he might not be able to live at home for much longer, our hearts – mine and my sister’s – were in need of such bursting.

We will wrap them in tutus, and run with them. You could join us.
