BENEFITING: Allyson Whitney Foundation
ORGANIZER: Allyson Whitney Foundation
EVENT: 2013 Allyson Whitney 5k
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
I am running the Allyson Whitney Foundation's Annual 5K race on May 11th, 2013, and my goal is to raise $500 to donate to the organization. Last year's race raised about $50,000 on crowdrise.com and much more offline. They awarded 17 young adults battling rare cancers $29,000 and donated $10,000 to MDAnderson Cancer Center for their research data base for the rare cancer Small Cell Cervical.
While I did not know Allyson Whitney personally, I have been personally touched by her story, and am continually inspired by another young woman that has battled a rare form of cancer since birth. Bri, I am running for you and praying for you everyday. You inspire me and everyone who knows you.
Help us give young adults with rare cancers a helping hand, a voice and HOPE!
