These 2 are why I run marathons. Not for them, but because I am blessed that they are healthy. Because of them, I have met some incredible people,  See more

THE STORY:

PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION wrote -

Prayers from Maria was inspired by the prayers of seven-year-old Maria McNamara, who lost her battle against a brain stem glioma in 2007. While Maria was receiving treatment at St. Jude, she prayed for other sick children that she met, hoping the doctors would find a way to help them and make them better. Prayers from Maria, founded by Maria’s parents Ed and Megan McNamara of Avon Lake, Ohio, is dedicated to answering Maria’s prayers by funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for gliomas and bringing hope to children and families who deal with the disease’s hardships. Our Planting Hope sunflower garden in Avon, Ohio, has attracted thousands and elevated awareness and fundraising for childhood brain cancer research. Our most recent $250,000 grant to Case Western Reserve University is funding cutting edge research exploring the use of nanotechnology to more effectively and less toxically treat children's brain tumors. Our marathon team, known as the Sunflower Striders, has raised over $112,000 in research dollars by particpating in 11 marathons over the past 7 years. Participation in the Cleveland Marathon alone has raised over $77,000. Please support our team by either joining it, or by making a donation.
