David-you are such an inspiration. I remember watching you tell the story of doing the 5K the day after losing your brother on American Idol, and it was so moving. I am definitely joining your team and will do all I can to help! Plus I am HUGE fan of your music. You are one of the few artists that I can listen to the entire CD all the way through, and I love it more each time. Thanks for everything you do.

A popular song goes that "learning to love oneself is the greatest..." I believe that life spent less on self and more for others is a life well spent. This is what i truli admire in David. If onli he can also run and perform for our chariti in the Philippines, one that's worthwhile and close to our hearts like Gawad Kalinga (Give Care) for the poorest who continue to live homeless in a country that's always devastated bi natural calamities. After his tour with Gavin maybe he can find it in his heart to come back here in 2012. Just hoping...

CROWDRISING SINCE: Sep 23, 2011
Stuff About Me:

Cancer research is a cause that is close to my heart. In May 2009, I lost my 37-year-old brother to a brain tumor that he had been fighting courageously for more than a decade.

The following day, I had planned on running and serving as the Grand Marshal for the 5K Race for Hope in Washington, D.C. to help benefit Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2).  I knew my brother would have wanted me to continue this race so I ran that day in honor of him and all of those suffering from cancer. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

Next year, I’ll be running the 2012 Honda LA Marathon for Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure. This will be a challenging race, but one accomplishment I will be incredibly proud of and honored to do.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure has awarded over $15 million to fund brain tumor and brain cancer research. They invest in high-risk, high-reward research in each stage of the therapeutic development pipeline. Their Pre-Clinical Screening Program breaks down barriers to entry, their research grants focus on novel therapies, and their investments with companies allow us to bring the most promising treatments to patients quickly.  

Please join me in the fight against cancer by supporting ABC2. Select my fundraiser below or here and please donate. Any amount is appreciated and WILL make a real difference.

Even better, JOIN THE TEAM and help me fundraise. Share your team member page with all of your friends and ask for their support.  Let’s make this cause viral. It starts with YOU.

Thank you,

David
