I have been searcing for something to be a part of... something with meaning... something that helps me to help others.... I FOUND the B*Cured Foundation through a client of mine. Little did I know about brain cancer or any cancer for that matter other than it's not fair, we don't have cures, and people are losing their loved ones everyday.
Running has been a spiritual journay for me for the past 3 years now. I ran my first half marathon last year and kicked a**! I LOVE to run, as it's my time to connect with the big man upstairs (GOD). He has been very good to me, and so now it's time for me to give back.
Running this half marathon would mean the world to me, but even more so to be able to say that I helped contribute to such an incredible organization, and make a difference. While I may not know anyone who's died from this horrible cancer, I DO know people close to me who have., and MAYBE you know someone too...
Isn't it time you made a difference too? Even if just a small donation, every donation counts!

B*CURED builds awareness about brain cancer and funds research to develop a cure. Both the founders, Debbie and Melissa, lost a parent to glioblastoma, the most lethal and the most common form of brain cancer. In sharing our stories, we realized that there wasn't enough support for patients and their families, there weren't many promising treatment options and the survival rates were discouraging.
Our closest friends and several local neurosurgeons shared our vision and committed their talents to help get B*CURED off the ground. Now 3 years and 3 grants for cutting edge brain cancer research later, B*CURED is making important strides in the race to cure brain cancer.
We want to replicate the success of the breast and prostate cancer models where aggressive funding of research leads to early detection and an array of treatment options decreasing the toll of this devastating cancer. We will not rest until we cure brain cancer!
Our B*CURED ING NYC Marathon Team is dedicating their athletic and fundraising talents to get the word out and to fund more critical brain cancer research. They are awesome so please support them generously!
