Madison Beggs, an incredibly inspirational Howell girl, lost her battle with cancer last June at age 12. This Saturday there's a very special soccer marathon in her memory.

The event, the Madison Beggs Kicks 4 Kids Soccer Marathon, takes place all day this Saturday at Soldier Memorial Field in Howell. Of course, there will be soccer all day long and much more. I'm going to stop by at around 10:30am to show my support.

There are also many local businesses who have supported this great event, and you can see them listed and get more info on the event by visiting the Madison Beggs Kicks 4 Kids Facebook page.

Our thoughts are with Madison's family and friends on this very special day that remembers a very special person.
