DENVER - Lacey Henderson: She beat cancer, lost her right leg, broke a world record for pole vaulting, training for the 2016 Paralympic Games, and this weekend she's running in the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon.
Henderson, who beat cancer at 9 years old, is running in the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon for team refuel Sunday, Oct. 20.
Team Refuel is a part of the Got Chocolate Milk? campaign.
They've partnered with the Challenged Athletes Foundation. CAF gives money to athletes with all sorts of physical disabilities.
"I've been working with CAF for a couple years now," Henderson said. "They've really helped me with my personal track career."
The foundation's motto is "If you've got a body, you're an athlete."
At the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon there will be a band cheering runners on at every mile.
Atlas Genius will headline the concert after the race, which will be in Civic Center Park.
The bike tour begins at 6:45 A.M.
The Marathon begins at 7:15 A.M.
After the marathon Henderson will continue her training for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.
"I got back from the world championships this year and had a really good international debut," Henderson said. "Things are looking up. I'm very excited to see in future years what's in store for 2016."
