#WhyIStride Story

We have a wonderful and inspiring story from Katherine Dawson, current Team Captain for Sue's Superheros, on her inspiration and good friend, Sue Stubbs, who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer in late 2016. Sue's determination, dignity, and strength throughout her battle with the disease continues to inspire her loved ones, team, and those that had the opportunity to know her.
