Fort Mill Woman Runs Marathon for 11-year-old Neighbor

A neighbor is showing support for a tough 11 year old

The Boston Marathon was scheduled to happen April 20th.  The event has been recheduled for  September due to COVID-19. The delay hasn’t stopped Fort Mill Mom, Katie Milam, who is running for her 11-year-old neighbor, Greyson.  Greyson Gload is the son of former Major League Baseball player Ross Gload and his wife Betsy.  Greyson has been in the fight of his life, battling a brain tumor since 2016.  He has had two surgeries and the fight continues. Katie – running with Greyson’s journey in mind – already has run 26.2 miles around her Fort Mill neighborhood.  She did it in three hours and 40 minutes.  The neighborhood jaunt was in preparation for the Boston Marathon, also a fundraising event through which Katie is raising $10,000 for the National Brain Tumor Society.   She already has raised $6500.  With five months to go, Katie hopes donations will reach, or even exceed her goal.
