BENEFITING: Colon Cancer Alliance
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
Dear Family and Friends,
On November the 6th of 2011 I will be running the New York City Marathon in memory of my grandmother Valentina. She and I had been really close and I love her dearly. So I thought that it would be really cool to raise money toward the research for the cure of the disease she died from. She was diagnosed with colon cancer and died from it in 2009 at 71 years old. The funds raised from this event will go directly to the charity, the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) and my goal is at least $1,000.00 and more.
CCA is the oldest and largest national patient advocacy organization dedicated to ending the suffering caused by colorectal cancer. In order to increase rates of screening and survivorship, the CCA provides patient support, public education, supports research and conducts advocacy work across America.
Today, the CCA provides information and services to hundreds of thousands each year.
Your support will improve the lives of many people, so please help if you can. Any amount is appreciated.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
