"We lost my dear, sweet sister-in-law Maureen in April 2009. She lost her battle to a very aggressive brain cancer. Maureen and I were great friends, ever since she met and married my only brother, Frank. Every year family and friends gather and we do a Walk of Hope, so that no one else loses a loved one to this terrible disease. This our 2013 photo from our Walk of Hope. "

Miles for Melanoma by Sparks Family - 6 months ago

Miles For Melanoma T-Shirt Photo

"My father passed away in May from Melanoma. Our family..His wife, Redia (who is 75), Daughters Linda and Vickie , Son Eddie and Daughter in law Carol, entered a "MIles for Melanoma" race/walk in his memory in Nashville, TN in October. His motto while sick was Refuse to Lose and we called him Paw...we incorporated all this into the shirt design. Customink did a WONDERFUL job on the shirts, were more than prompt with delivery and took special care in packing, even shipped in pastic to protect from water. They were also kind enough to make a donation to our cause. We were recognized as the purple shirt team and proud to wear our t-shirts. Thanks Customink for your part in remembering our DAD!"

Walking For Wildman T-Shirt Photo

"This was the 2013 American Heart Association, Heart Walk in Baltimore, MD on 10/19. We did this walk in memory of my grandfather, Robert "Wildman" Roth, who died from complications of a stroke on August 1st, 2013. He LOVED boating and we spent many summers on his boat, "Mid-Nite Star." I was glad we were able to capture his love of boating on this shirt! The process with CustomInk exceeded my expectations! From the ease of use of the site, the quick response, the fast delivery, and the actual product far surpassing what I had imagined! Thank you for helping to make this a memorable event for me and my family! I know this made my grandfather's day!"

We Run For Donna by JessicaS - 6 months ago

We Run For Donna T-Shirt Photo

"My family, friends, and I recently ran in a 10K race in Big Sur, CA. This race has become a yearly tradition that we all look forward to throughout the year. My father, Bob Schuster (in the yellow), ran in his 33rd consecutive run. He's 67 years-old and he and my mom stumbled upon this race by accident the first year that it took place. Since then, they have completed every single one of the runs. This year's race was a difficult one for all of us as we ran with extremely heavy hearts. My mom, Donna Schuster, passed away just a few weeks before the race, on August 24. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in July of 2004 - just a few weeks after she completed her first marathon at the age of 58. She was a lifelong runner and an extremely healthy woman. Her diagnosis shocked us all. She fought the cancer tooth and nail for over 9 years. Through surgeries, countless rounds of chemo, and several doses of radiation, she remained bound and determined to stay with us for as long as she possibly could. She even ran another marathon 2 years after her diagnosis while she was in remission. Her courage and strength and willingness to fight allowed her to meet my kids (her two beloved grandchildren), to travel around the world, and to make the most of each and every day. It's impossible for me to put into words how much this race meant to my mom, and to those of us who love her, over the years. Being able to walk up to the starting line each year, regardless of her physical or emotional condition at the time, was her way of saying, "I'm still in this. The cancer hasn't taken this away from me. I'm still here." She absolutely REFUSED to miss the Big Sur River Run. There were years that she was too weak from chemo or surgery to run. So she walked the entire 10K. There were years she was completely bald. There were years that her body was in so much discomfort that she probably shouldn't have done it. But she did. Every single year - she did it. As we all stepped up to the starting line of the race on Saturday morning, we couldn't help but smile. Because but for her and my dad's dedication to this little race in Big Sur every October, we might not have this amazing yearly tradition that brings together our closest friends and our families. My mom left behind an amazing legacy and this Big Sur tradition is one we are incredibly proud of and grateful for. She may not have gotten to run Big Sur XXXIII and continue to be among the very few who had run every single race. But there were nearly 30 of us in bright teal shirts at the starting line running in her honor. Teal is the color for Ovarian Cancer awareness. Our shirts, made beautifully by Custom Ink, said "I RUN FOR DONNA." Two of us were not wearing the teal shirt. My dad wore his original (from the first year) yellow original Big Sur River Run shirt and I wore my mom's. We ran in honor and in memory of Donna Schuster, an amazing and inspiring woman, wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, and friend. Thank you for making these beautiful shirts. They helped us all feel united and prompted many conversations with other race participants."

Noreen's Angels by Kristen - 6 months ago

Noreen's Angels T-Shirt Photo

"We run every Sunday, and on Oct. 3, we ran Ridgefield's annual Half Marathon in memory of our dear friend Noreen, who passed away from Colon Cancer in June. She was an avid runner, but didn't like to race in town races, because they were like 'gym class'. So we ran for her, "Noreen's Gym Class Angels". Just another Sunday run. Her husband ran as well. CustomInk did a fabulous job, printing 35 shirts in four different sizes. Those who didn't run, cheered us along the route in their shirts."

"This year I ran the ING New York City Marathon in memory of my grandfather who passed away in December after a long struggle with Alzheimer's after an otherwise very vibrant life. My family and friends who we're very impacted by the disease really enjoyed uniting around 'Run for Chuck' and raising money for Alzheimer's care. It was an unforgettable race and a great day with friends and family. I'm sure my grandfather enjoyed watching from up above. This shot is in central park close to the finish line after the race. "
