Ethan's 1-Mile Run

On March 27, 2011, 11 year-old Earlham student Ethan Godwin passed away. Ethan had VATER syndrome, which affected his heart, kidney & digestive system. Ethan overcame surgery on his first day of life and continued to beat the odds through many illnesses and surgeries. He was fearless and resilient and lived every day as if it were his last.
