    Picture a crisp October morning in Madison, Wisconsin – the bright colors of fall leaves, mists over the blue waters of Lake Mendota and – on one Sunday (the 14th this year) – a crowd of excited people waiting to run, walk or roll in the 2018 Waisman Whirl for ALL Abilities!

    10-year-old Lauren Tierney had only walked a mile a few times before. Yet here she was, on a cool October morning, at the starting line for the Waisman Whirl Run Walk & Roll for All Abilities, getting ready to tackle the mile loop.
