BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
ORGANIZER: American Cancer Society
EVENT: Tough Mudder Western NY 2017
I have chosen American Cancer Society as my fundraiser for a few reasons. The first being that my step-dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer as of late last year. Another being that my dad passed away from lung cancer. My grandmother also passed from breast cancer and I know others who have had to endure pain in one way, shape, or form.
The last few years I have suffered from severe sciatica and being that I'm only 34 years old, this came as a shock and definite struggle. For roughly 4 years now, I have done all that I could and made tremendous progressions with various therapies and such, and am now in a position to fight back. For not only myself, but for those who need it more than I do and that was when I came across this opportunity to help cancer research.
The first and last time I did Tough Mudder was in 2014 and so I want to give everything I can to conquer it again. This seems like a good year, and I could not pass up the chance to try to do what I can for those fighting their own battles. So please consider donating to my page. Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated. Thank you and much love.
