THE STORY:

Gilda’s Club NYC is named after comedienne Gilda Rader who once said that having cancer gave her membership in an elite club she’d rather not belong.

Gilda's Club has made a positive difference for people affected by cancer. It is a place where all people affected by cancer have access to the highest quality psychosocial care. Most importantly, Gilda's Club recognizes that family and friends are also affected when there is a cancer diagnosis and therefore offers support to all people with all types of cancer, including their families and friends, so that no one has to face cancer alone.

At Gilda’s Club New York City thousands of individuals and families come to the downtown clubhouse and 6 satellite locations throughout New York City annually as they face cancer in their lives. Gilda’s Club NYC provides support and networking groups, educational lectures, workshops and social activities as individuals learn to live with cancer in their lives. This is all free of charge to members.

In my life, I have watched many family members (too many to count) fight various forms of cancer. Unfortunately, in most of these cases, they were not successful in their fight.  Most recently, a dear family friend lost her battle with breast cancer. It was devastating. I learned about Gilda's Club through her daughter, with whom I was training for a marathon during this difficult time. She ended up joining her local Gilda's Club.  Loosing your mother is an incredibly hard thing to experience, but I can see how being active in Gilda's Club has helped my friend accept and deal with her loss. 

I have a guaranteed entry in the the NYC Marathon this year, but have chosen to run with Gilda's Club NYC Marathon Team anyway. I think it is important to support this organization because it is open to anyone and everyone, for free, and it really, truly does make a difference.

Join me in supporting Gilda’s Club NYC. A gift of any size will impact the members and program of Gilda’s Club NYC. My finish line after 26.2 miles will be a starting line for others.

As a team, Gilda's Club NYC Marathon Team will raise $100,000. This will provide the following:

  • Sponsorship for 200 new members
  • Sponsorship for CampSparkle for the entire summer
  • Supports lectures from medical experts who provide knowledge and skills to help members through their cancer experience.
  • Increase awareness of the mission of Gilda's Club NYC

Thank you for your support!
