THE STORY:

I am running the NYC marathon in memory of my cousin and lifelong sidekick, Patrick Kelly, who lost his battle with brain cancer this year at far too young an age.  Patrick was a true outdoorsman and naturalist, and never shied away from adventure.  With only months left to live, he was still skiing the steepest drops of his favorite spot in Snowmass, Aspen, and kept smiling until his very last day.  In that spirit, I am pushing myself to run twice as far as I have ever run, along with several of our family members and his all-powerful bedrock wife, Collins.   

The organization we are running for is B*CURED.

B*CURED’s mission is to end brain cancer by funding innovative research grants. To date, B*CURED has awarded 14 grants to investigators searching for a cure for brain cancer at nationally ranked universities and hospitals.

B*CURED is an all-volunteer 501 (c) 3 organization, founded in 2008 by Debbie Needle and Melissa Salamé. B*CURED is run by co-presidents Karena Bailey and Kristin Duda. All money raised goes directly to brain cancer research.

B*CURED's fight is personal. All of us have had a loved one affected by this horrible illness. It is time to change the depressingly low statistics and give people the chance to survive brain cancer. 

We will #BeatBrainCancer!
