Hello, and welcome to my fundraising page!
I have finally decided to accomplish my long-term goal of completing a marathon. I'm even training this time, so I don't end up in the medical tent like I did after my first half marathon in 2014! On October 7th, one month after I move to Chicago, I will be participating in the city's marathon. I am extremely excited to complete my first marathon in my new city! To make the many months of training more meaningful, I have decided to join Team Breakthrough in its efforts to fundraise for the American Brain Tumor Association.
Each day, 500 people across the U.S. are diagnosed with a brain tumor. These tumors can have devastating effects on both the individual suffering and entire families. All of the money I raise will provide critical funding for the American Brain Tumor Association, which is leading cutting edge brain tumor research while also offering support to patients and their families. Your donation will support ongoing efforts to improve, extend and ultimately save lives.
On behalf of brain tumor patients, their families and researchers, thank you so much in advance for your support. Your kind donations will motivate me through my miles of training!
All my love and appreciation,
