In this photo she is participating in her school's jogathon to raise money for the school to buy new equipment.
Ashley's will and determination has inspired others.
For example, Ashley's aunt Joanna is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by participating in Team In Training. She has made Ashley an honory team member for her half marathon walk at the Nike Women's Challenge in San Francisco. Thanks Joanna! To support Joanna's efforts on October 18th, go to her TNT page.
