Dayna and Denise Stropkay #TeamDayna

Short Introduction

My name is Dayna and I ran my first Race for Courage in Miami 3 years ago. I convinced my mom as I have done all my life to join me across the finish line. You see the doctors told us when I was young I had a rare disability however our brains and heart processed those words to mean rare ABILITY and we have followed that instinct ever since.

About Me

Kids of Courage gave me the ability to dip deep inside of myself, to accomplish goals others may have thought were too far out of my reach. So 4 years ago when the opportunity to give back to this amazing organization came about through running Race for Courage in Miami I ran my first half marathon. 1 year later I convinced my non athletic mom to cross that finish line with me as she has done throughout my life. In the pouring rain and cold, after many hours we crossed the finish line. Last year we traveled to Phoenix where we did it again. This year we will go back to where it all began in Miami. This year we carry in our hearts the special people we have encountered in countless waiting rooms recently. Each fighting to survive yet another day, another month, another year. Withstanding chemo, radiation, surgery, still able to smile. Their determination, their inner strength, their willingness to endure all just to be a part of this beautiful world.

Hi Dayna, please don't lose hope. I so admire your drive along with your mom! My prayers are with your dad. My brother, Bob, is also praying for him. It has been rewarding for me to reconnect with my cousin, Bill. Growing up we always had a good cousinship. I am enjoying getting to know my new cousins. My thought is if the people who donated already re-donate (like I have just done) that could get you closer to the goal. Love, Cousin Cheryl and Family.
