I am both honored and excited to be running my first half marathon - ever - for such a fantastic cause!
Far too many of us have been impacted by cancer, and thankfully great strides have been made in treatment of some cancers. But we need to do more! The survival rate for some forms of cancer -- brain cancer (which I lost my Mom to), ovarian and pancreatic just to name a few -- are still frighteningly low.
Given all the struggles that victims of pancreatic cancer and their families go through, the least I can do is run 13.1 miles! Please support me in this important run, first and foremost with whatever $ you can give to Project Purple, and secondly after the race I'll probably need some help getting around for a few days!
