THE STORY:

Please help me reach my goal towards my first Boston marathon!

As most of you know, cancer has personally touched our family's lives. In 2008, my Dad was diagnosed with Leukemia. Throughout the cancer treatments, my Dad always had a positive outlook on everything. After many chemo treatments and even a blood transfusion, there were still some complications and we lost him 2 weeks before his 63rd birthday and 1 week before my 24th birthday. I knew I wanted to run my first marathon in his memory, so in 2009, I joined Team in Training through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and for the next 4 years, my wonderful family and friends helped me raised over $20,000 towards blood cancer research as I ran 26.2 miles year after year. Every marathon I've run has been dedicated to him with his name on the back of my singlet and his smiling face on the button that I wear over my heart. Since 2009, I have now run 15 marathons and this year I will be adding 5 more, which includes the Boston marathon! The Team in Training Boston chapter did not have anymore entries for this race, but they linked me to AKTIV which is another cancer fighting charity in which I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity!

I'm super excited to run the Boston marathon as last year was my first trip there and I cheered on my friends who ran it! No donation amount is too small, I am grateful for any donation! Thank you in advance for your help and your support through my journey!

Love,

Michele
