Sue and Tim Anderson, Josh Anderson’s parents, are FZTR supporters and have been a continuing inspiration to us. Here is news from them:
On March 26th, Lauren Anderson and close friends will run the SunTrust National Half Marathon in the honor of Joshua Lee Anderson, who tragically ended his life on March 18, 2009. The Josh Anderson Memorial Fund was created shortly thereafter to support programs for the education and prevention of teenage suicide. Lauren, her mother and two dear friends ran the marathon and half marathon last year on March 20, 2010 in Josh's honor and raised $8,000 towards the Fund! This summer, Lauren plans on moving back to the D.C. area and devoting time and energy towards the fight against teenage suicide.
