Hello friends and family! As some of you may know, about a year and a half ago I lost a very dear friend to cancer. Shortly after her passing, I signed up to run the Chicago Marathon and found AICR as the closest avenue that would allow me to run the race in her honor. Because of the great success I had with AICR last year and because I truly believe in what they stand for as an organization, I have chosen to run the TCS New York City Marathon for AICR on November 6th. AICR is the cancer research charity that funds research specifically on the links between diet, physical activity, and weight management to cancer prevention and survivorship.
Scientists estimate that about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented by eating a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight. As a marathon runner, I am committed to these goals, and ask for your support as I train and eventually run those grueling 26.2 miles. Thank you in advance for your support and love to you all!
