Why Dirty Socks?
Ellie Levy, like the children and young adults that Ellie's Army Foundation assists, battled a terminal illness.
At the age of 22, Ellie received two consecutive double-lung transplants in an effort to save her life. She was told that if she wanted to get out of the hostpial she must walk. Ellie's doctor told her he wanted to see dirty socks so that he could see that she was walking. So, in defiance of the pain, Ellie walked and walked and walked.
Despite the effort of both herself and her doctors, Ellie did not survive. She was only 23 years old. But her lesson, spirit, and inspiration remain.
All children in the hospital wear medical socks. They must walk to get well. At the Dirty Socks 5K run and walkathon, we walk for them.
