BENEFITING: ARMS WIDE OPEN CHILDHOOD CANCER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2014
Welcome to our page! Since Cindy's birthday event was so successful last year, we are running together to raise even more money for childhood cancer research. As two August babies who have been doing things together since our own childhood (like running outside in our diapers), it seemed only appropriate to join forces in this race.
The good news is that some of the folks who inspired this event last year have gone through hell and back, and successfully kicked cancer's ass! Unfortunately, others were not so lucky.
My friend's 4-year-old daughter Natalie Grace is still fighting the good fight against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, and it's her birthday wish to raise $150,000 for others like her. This is our contribution towards her goal.
Life is full of many ups and downs. But each year brings newfound gratitude for every healthy day, and this 5K race is our public ackowledgment of that blessing.
So, if you know someone battling cancer, have lost someone to cancer, are the person making your way through this ugly disease, or just want to see two old pals get their birthday wish—please support us.
100% of funds raised go directly to childhood cancer research.
Thank you for your support!
