BENEFITING: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION

EVENT: Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon 2012

EVENT DATE: May 20, 2012

THE STORY:

On May 20th, I'll be running the Cleveland Half Marathon. I have chosen to fundraise to support an amazing foundation called Prayers From Maria Children's Glioma Cancer Foundation. I've joined 80 other runners for this Foundation. Our team is called the Sunflower Striders.


Prayers From Maria is a grassroots foundation started right here in Cleveland by parents who lost their 7 year old daughter to a brain stem glioma in 2007. When their daughter was diagnosed, they were given no hope of survival. They found that research of gliomas is grossly underfunded, so they made it their mission to raise public awareness about gliomas and to raise money to fund research grants.

The glioma family of tumors accounts for almost 45% of all tumors and are the second highest cause of cancer deaths among young people. 85-95% of children who are diagnosed with a glioma die within five years. To learn more about gliomas and the foundation, please go to www.prayersfrommaria.org.

I hope that you will support me in my mission to complete this race by making a donation to this wonderful cause. Any amount would be so appreciated!
