When the abilities of many human beings unite for a common goal...it is a powerful creation. In "Malachi" which means "The Messenger of God" we find our future, filled with hope, for he doesn't understand sadness even though he knows pain. He doesn't understand defeat, for he has already won. The runners, are an extension of the child's dreams, they run for life! The musician holds on his shoulders more than the little messenger, but the responsibility to keep everyone from giving up. As you search the faces of the adults, you feel the urgency to fulfill their goals, and in the face of the child, you find the purity of one little soul and his ability to encourage us to try harder, run farther, and effect change.
“I have had the honor of creating a work of art each year for the Rock n Roll Marathon San Diego, since it began in 1998. It has been an unbelievable experience for me and my family to become part of something so powerful in saving the lives of so many. My paintings have always encompassed the struggle and the joy of everyone involved in the fight for a cure of Leukemia. I am proud of each painting and believe that they have had an impact on encouraging people to continue this journey .
This year, I create a painting that continues the story of this beautiful and meaningful event, but with my young honor patient. His name is Malachi, and he is two years old. He is representative of all of the children we must continue to fight for .”

“ Every year I come back here to not only give back to my community and the Country which gave me so much, but also to feel the great American spirit and energy that is created during this weekend. This is where all of us unite for a common goal, to help others who need our support. This is where we forget our differences, our ethnical backgrounds, political and religious beliefs, and just work hard and celebrate the success. Everyone brings something to the table with a strong commitment. From the organizers, the trainers, the volunteers, the runners, all of the supporters, the musicians and the city itself, this is a big celebration of unity and life. This is the way I want to see America. It is an honor to be part of this event”
