BENEFITING: Voices Against Brain Cancer
ORGANIZER: Voices Against Brain Cancer
Dear Friends and Family,
On November 6th I will be running in the New York City Marathon as part of the Voices Against Brain Cancer team. The money that I raise will go towards finding a cure for brain cancer and brain tumors, as well as supporting patients and families who are afflicted by this disease.
Unfortunately, either directly or indirectly, the diagnosis of a tumor or cancer has affected us all. We have all been inspired by the bravery and determination shown by our loved ones as they fight their way back to health.
As most of you know, my boyfriend and running partner, Will Naughton, battled a brain tumor 3 years ago and has now fully recovered. We are excited to run 26.2 miles together for a cause which helps the diagnosis of brain cancer feel less lonesome.
Through the power of a team, Voices Against Brain Cancer helps those diagnosed connect with the best doctors and strongest support network across the nation. It is my hope that by teaming up with all of you, we can help find a cure for cancer and add to the support network for those who are fighting it.
My goal is to raise $7,000 by race day. Please consider making a contribution through my online fundraising page: https://www.crowdrise.com/againstbraincancernyc2016/fundraiser/midgedaniel.
All donations are 100% tax-deductible and all funds raised through Voices Against Brain Cancer will go directly towards brain cancer research. $1 per mile would be $26.2 - every bit counts! Please share this link with friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your support!
