THE STORY:

Hello,


On November 5th, 2017 I am lacing up my sneakers and running the New York Marathon to raise money for AKTIV Against Cancer. AKTIV Against Cancer works to ensure physical activity will become an integral part of cancer treatment. ATKIV supports cutting-edge research on the benefits of exercise for the prevention and treatment of cancer, as well as the creation of fitness programs and facilities in cancer treatment centers. I am taking on this fundraising challenge in my life to honor my friends and father who have battled cancer during their lives. Each one of these special people has survived cancer previously because of their positive attitude, mental fortitude, and the breakthroughs in cancer research. Unfortunately, back in December 13th 2015, I lost my father due to his battle with gastric cancer.  Running in my second NYC marathon will be very special for me because it will remind me of my father's and other people's courage in battling cancer. In addition, I will also run the original Athens Marathon in Greece which occurs in the following week! My goal is to also receive an additional olive wreath for which I already placed one with my father as a symbol of peace and qualify for Boston Marathon in 2018. Now, your part is easy. All you need to do is commit to sponsoring me. My part is a little more arduous. I have committed to raising $3,000 for AKTIV Against Cancer by completing the full distance of 26.2 miles. Please donate as generously as you can by clicking on this link https://www.crowdrise.com/aktiv-against-cancer-nyc-2017 or at https://aktivagainstcancer.squarespace.com/donate/.


Just in case you need a little extra motivation to sponsor me, here are a few reasons.


1. I will be going through a couple of sneakers, lots of ice bags for my shins and knees, Advil, massages, and back adjustments while all you have to do is simply donate.

2. You can sleep late on November 5th while still funding for cancer research. Just let me run the rest!

3. Your donation is tax deductible.

4.  AKTIV Against Cancer has donated more than $14M and helping to create 15 physical activity centers in cancer treatment facilities.


Thank you for your support!
