BENEFITING: DEBBIES DREAM FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2015
To everyone’s surprise, I will be running the SF Half Marathon in July 26th to support my aunt’s fight against stomach cancer. I have not run in ~10 years so this will be a big challenge!
I plan to support Debbie's Dream Foundation (“DDF”), a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness about stomach cancer, funding research, and providing education and support internationally to patients, families, and caregivers. Stomach cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in men and 4th among women worldwide. According to the American Cancer Society, the overall 5-year relative survival rate for people with stomach cancer in the U.S. is ~28%. DDF’s ultimate goal to make the cure for stomach cancer a reality. All proceeds from this fundraise will specifically fund research.
This is my first ever race so I am both excited and nervous to participate! Please consider making a donation. DDF is a 501(c)(3) charity so all donations are 100% tax deductible. DDF’s website is https://www.debbiesdream.org/portal/about-debbies-dream. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you very much for your support!
