Shattering the myth that ice hockey players can't run distance one marathon at a time ;-)
I am running the Chicago Marathon for the America Brain Tumor Association in memory of my Uncle Larry. He was my inspiration. He taught me to never give up. I won't give up in these next months of marathon training: I will keep running, raising awareness, and fundraising for a future free of brain tumors.
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. My Uncle Larry was one of those people. He touched so many lives that his memorial service caused a back up on the highway! His passion and generousity will live on. Words can't describe the gratitude I have for all my Uncle Larry taught me. I am honored to have the opportunity to continue his legacy and support a group working to cure the disease that took his life far too soon.
To show my support, I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s Team Breakthrough Endurance program. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
