"When my dad got sick, I started getting everybody in my family to go on group runs," Cameron explained. "It started once a week on like a Thursday, and we'd go for 30 minutes and just meet for 30 minutes, and then go do like an hour. We just keep increasing, and I really enjoyed doing it. It was good family time, good time with my friends and we all got better together."
