Rachael Asselin, walking in memory of her mother, Rylin Ann Malone (1993)

Rachael Asselin

I am overjoyed to be part of the Runway community and to be part of the 10th anniversary of something so special.  I’m walking because we have all been touched by incredible women in our lives.  Women who have given us strength we didn’t know we had, showed us the way when we couldn’t see, and taught us what it means to love unconditionally. My mother was one of these incredible women. She inspired everyone she met to believe they could be more. She challenged us to live every moment to its fullest. She lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of forty-five but continues to teach me more about beauty, strength, joy and love than I could have ever imagined. I am so proud to walk in memory of my mom, Rylin Ann Malone, and I am honored to celebrate the amazing women and families at Runway for Recovery. Each and every one of you is truly an inspiration.
