THE STORY:

So, as of yesterday (01/16/2014) I am officially a member of the Project Purple Lincoln Marathon Team!  Well, what does this mean exactly.  This means that I will be running my 1st marathon wearing the color purple.  Okay, that was probably a little too obvious.  Project Purple is non profit organization that raises funds and awareness towards a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.

What are some of the reasons that this research is needed?  Pancreatic Cancer is actually the 4th largest killer out of the list of cancers.  It is also the least funded out of the top 10 cancers.

I have not been afflicted by cancer, but there are a lot of people around me that have been.  My brother's sister-in-law has been winning her battle with Breast Cancer.  The current Chairman and former CEO of Union Pacific Railroad (the company I work for) is currently battling Pancreatic Cancer.  So, right off the bat I have 2 direct connections to the need for a cure for cancer.  Family and the "leader" of my organization.

Beyond me directly, readers of my blog Dreadmill Drummer have been directly affected by Pancreatic Cancer.  Harry W. lost his father to Pancreatic Cancer in 2008.  Erin P of Calf Sleeves are Cool and her husband lost his step-mother 2 years ago after a 4 1/2 year battle with the disease.

Now, you are probably wondering how Project Purple relates to running.  Well, by being accepted to the Project Purple Lincoln Marathon Team I will be helping to raise funds for Project Purple.  And for that support from me, Project Purple and the Lincoln Track Club (the one that puts on the Lincoln Marathon) have given me the opportunity to run the Lincoln Marathon on Sunday May 4th, 2014.  Now, this will be my very 1st marathon....ever!  So it is going to be a challenge for me, but I am willing to take on that challenge.  Especially for such a great cause.

If you want to help out hit the big orange "DONATE TO THIS FUNDRAISER" button.  Every little bit counts.  If you can donate $1, I welcome it.  If you can donate $100, then that would be amazing of you.
