I attended the Gilda's Club Charity Gala in November and after realizing the importance of this organization, I decided to sign up for their marathon team in order to raise money for such a great cause. For those of you not familiar with Gilda's Club, it is a national organization with the main goal being to create a welcoming community of support for all those touched by cancer. Not only does Gilda's support the individual, but also focuses on their family and friends through groups, workshops, lectures and a variety of other essential social events. Most importantly, through continued support of the fundraising community, this "safe haven" is without charge. Whether it be a friend or family member, we have all been touched by cancer at some point in our lives; therefore, we can recognize the importance of Gilda's Club. Please support me in my marathon efforts as all the money raised will go to a valuable cause. Thank you very much for your generosity!
