We are running the Miami Marathon on January 28, 2018 to celebrate the lives of two amazing people - Daniella Moffson and Arianna Dougan.

Daniella Moffson was an amazing young woman who tragically died in 2016 while on an aid mission to Honduras. Daniella was very involved with Camp Simcha and served as a counselor a few years ago.

Arianna Dougan (“Ari”) who lived in St. Louis (where Talia goes to school) was a special young lady who valiantly fought Neuroblastoma for the last 9 years. Talia met her at the Miami Marathon in 2016, and over the last few years, she has become a little sister to Talia. Her story and her fight captured the hearts of so many people in St. Louis and around the country including members of the St. Louis Blues hockey team who took her on an amazing road trip early this year. Ari left us way too early at the age of 11 on 11/11/2017.

We are planning to run the marathon with smiles on our faces and tears in our hearts as we honor these two amazing angels.
