THE STORY:

 

Hello friends.

I have been training to run my first marathon in Los Angeles on March 18, 2012, and I never thought I would say this, but I look forward to the 26.2 mile challenge.   This will undoubtedly be one of the toughest things that I have ever set out to do in my life and I want to thank all of you who have supported and encouraged me so far.  As I prepare for the big day, I continue to run and log miles so that my body is physically prepared.  For my mental focus and preparation, I  have decided to raise money for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to give me the extra motivation and push that I am going to need to make it to the finish line.

I wanted to pick something that would be very close to my heart.  As some of you know, my father passed on August 6, 2008 from sarcoma, a soft tissue cancer.  It was a long emotional battle for him and our family.  As I would take my father to his countless doctor appointments or visit him in the hospital, I would also see children that were battling some form of the terrible disease.  It would always break my heart to see kids having to go thru that, and as a father of four, I can’t even imagine the fear and pain that both the kids and parents feel.

So as I lead up to my big run in less than two weeks now, please join me in supporting the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as they strive to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. 

Donate and support on this page:

Any amount helps and would mean the world to me.  Your thoughtfulness and generosity will push me one step closer to my personal goal of running a marathon, something that I never thought I could or would do.  But more importantly, together we will run for those that can’t and save lives while doing it.

I thank you in advance for all of your friendship, love, and support.   

See you at the finish line.
