Hi Everyone :),
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my fundraising page for the ABTA. This year I will be participating in the NYC Half Marathon on March 19, 2017 running with Team Breakthrough. I chose this organziation because it is extremely special to me. I am running in honor of my best friend's father John Comito who lost his battle to brain cancer in September 2008. I only knew John for about a year, but in that year he was the most high-spirited man all while taking care of his family and fighting his battle with brain cancer. I'm running to support the entire Comito family, especially John's new grandson Oliver, who though he won't get to meet his grandfather needs to know what an incredible man he was! I'm running to support any and all other families affected by this diesase. Please feel free to share this page with your family and friends. I have a fundraising minimum of $1,000 to reach before the race. Any and all donations are more than appreciated by me, the Comitos and the organization for the race. Please help me to reach my goal and do my part to putting an end to brain cancer! Below you can find some information about the statistics of people living with brain cancer as well as the organization Team Breakthrough! Thank you so much for your support it means the world to me <3
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. 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.
