I am running the 2019 Chicago Marathon for my Nan, who passed away from glioblastoma on August 6, 2018. Words will never be able to do her justice or describe what she was to me and my family, but simply, Nan was everything. She was our rock, our biggest supporter, a guiding light for all of us, and the best friend I could have ever asked for.
My family raised over $12,000 for glioblastoma research last March fundraising and running in the 2018 NYC United Airlines Half Marathon. I would like to continue fundraising so someday glioblastoma does not end another beautiful life or break the hearts of another family.
Please consider donating to Nan's Ninjas. We are all very grateful for your support and prayers.
Nan, I know you're in heaven laughing and telling me to 'stop with the running', but you and Pop are going to have quite a few more races to come chase all of us around cheering. I know you'll be with all of us every step of the way.
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.
