YOU THINK RUNNING A MARATHON IS HARD? ASK MY GIRLFRIEND ABOUT CHEMO!

via Crowdrise 3 years ago

BENEFITING: THINKCURE

ORGANIZER: THINKCURE

EVENT: Honda LA Marathon: $4 MIL Charity Challenge

EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011

THE STORY:

Hello all,
 
As I enthusiastically make my way towards my 4th marathon within a year's period, I also make it with a heavy heart. Last month my girlfriend Jessica Rodriguez was diagnosed with breast cancer. To show support and stand in solidarity with her, I decided to do what I do best, run long distance. Through the 2011 L.A. Marathon and Crowdrise, I will be running for the charitable organization "Think Cure". Think Cure raises money for grants that fund some of the nation's top researchers at City of Hope and Children's Hospital of Los Angeles - who are teaming up to make important discoveries in the fight against cancer. I'm asking for donations to support my participation in Think Cure and help advance their mission. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. I've never ran for a charity but what is better than to run in honor, support, and hope for our mothers, our sisters, aunts, children, cousins, colleagues, co workers, and 11 million other Americans living with this disease.
 
Thank you in advance for your support. 
 
 
Donate either $16 or $26 to any Project or Charity by March 31, 2011 and you'll be

signed up to win. If you’re fundraising on Crowdrise, you should consider sending this

promotion to everyone you know and ask them to donate. To prevent all sorts of worldwide

confusion, we recommend using either $16 or $26 when you ask for the donations.

It's easy and we have some great benefits, too! Here's how:

  3. Sign up to run or walk either the 5K (3.1 miles) or the marathon (26.2 miles) at www.lamarathon.com...and tell your friends. That's it! *

* If you've already signed up for the marathon or 5K, you can still join Team ThinkCure. Just create your Crowdrise page right here.
