EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Marathon is granting wishes through its "12 Days of Christmas Wishes Program".

Wednesday, the organization announced its sixth winner, Ashlee, who is getting ready to celebrate her 40th birthday by running the marathon.

The Marathon is donating $100 to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline on her behalf.

Ashlee said when she was at the University of Oregon, a family adopted her.

She said she just recently learned their youngest son committed suicide and said the race goes right by their neighborhood.

The Eugene Marathon will grant wishes through Christmas Day.
