Cancer research is a cause that is close to my heart. In May 2009, I lost my 37-year-old brother to a brain tumor that he had been fighting courageously for more than a decade.
The following day, I had planned on running and serving as the Grand Marshal for the 5K Race for Hope in Washington, D.C. to help benefit Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2). I knew my brother would have wanted me to continue this race so I ran that day in honor of him and all of those suffering from cancer. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.
Next year, I’ll be running the 2012 Honda LA Marathon for Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure. This will be a challenging race, but one accomplishment I will be incredibly proud of and honored to do.
Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure has awarded over $15 million to fund brain tumor and brain cancer research. They invest in high-risk, high-reward research in each stage of the therapeutic development pipeline. Their Pre-Clinical Screening Program breaks down barriers to entry, their research grants focus on novel therapies, and their investments with companies allow us to bring the most promising treatments to patients quickly.
