THE STORY:

Justin Chenard wrote - 

In 2011, my Marathon training for the LA Marathon started off strong.  Unfortunately, several weeks before the marathon, i ran up to several injuries into my training, one of which was a tear in my hip flexor.  I unfortunately wasn't able to overcome the injury by the start of the marathon and had to throw in the towel.  

With last year behind me and well into my 2012 LA Marathon training, I'm feeling like 2012 is going to be the year for me to knotch the marathon on my belt.  

The LA Marathon has set a goal of reaching $4M in donations and support for the marathon this year.  I have decided that if I can be a small part of such a great cause, I'm doing my small part to help this significant cause.

While working towards my own personal goal of finishing a marathon (and hopefully with a respectful time), I figured that I should try to do some good for the world and support a worthy cause.  I, like several others, have signed up to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation.  The Prostate Cancer Foundation is the leading philanthropic organization funding and accelerating research globally.Since 1993, the Foundation's unique strategies for identifying and investing in the most promising research programs have generated life-saving results. The Foundation channels resources to the world’s top scientific minds—cutting red tape and encouraging collaboration to speed breakthroughs.
