BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
ORGANIZER: American Cancer Society
EVENT: Tough Mudder Northeast 2017
For those of you that know me well, you know that I don't tend to do things for attention. So for me to draw attention to myself by asking for you to help me with this means that what I am about to ask is important to me. This isn't easy for me to reach out and ask all of you to help me with this, but this isn't about me.If you have known anyone that has battled through cancer or lost their life fighting this disease, then you know the struggles and heartache that comes with it. Not all that long ago I lost my grandfather to cancer and I promised myself that I would participate in marathons and events like Tough Mudder, not only challenge myself, but to raise money for charities that have impacted my life in some way. It's been a few years coming, but the time is now for me to fulfill that promise.
I can only hope that one day there will be a cure for this disease so that no one will lose a loved one to this and ever know the pain that this can bring. So I ask, if you are able to contribute, to please donate to the American Cancer Society at the link provided and help me reach my goal of $1,000. And if you can't then please share this with family, friends and coworkers. Thank you all.
