BENEFITING: COMMUNITY HOSPICE FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I am raising money in memory of my brother Bob; who for many years raised money for The Community Hospice. In the end, in a bit of unfortunate irony, it was Hospice that was there for him during his battle with cancer. He inspired so many during his life, and he is sorely missed. Bob was just the type of guy that would give you the shirt off his back....and if it didn't fit, he'd go buy you one that did. He had a knack about him to make everyone feel special, and his humor was unmatched. He'd probably think I am crazy running my first marathon at age 50, (and he may be right) but he will be right there every step of the way I am sure. My goal is to raise $2,620 ($100 per mile) for Bob's favorite charity, The Community Hospice Foundation. A charity that he raised tens of thousands of dollars for. So, if you have ever been touched by cancer, been helped by Hospice, or laughed because of Bob, think about donating. Please help me reach this goal. Rest assured, I will finish this race, even if I have to crawl to the finish line. I never knew Bob to quit at anything and I won't either. I appreciate any donation you can give. If you'd rather not donate on-line, feel free to send donations to my house - 718 Reese Road, Frankfort NY 13340. THANK YOU!
