The Jazz Half Marathon in New Orleans supports the Cancer Center at the Children's Hospital. Please support me in this race. Every penny of your donation goes directly to the Cancer Center! Let's join hands and fight childhood cancer...one mile at a time!
I've always wanted to run a half marathon, and running with the aim of raising money for children who are fighting day in and day out for their lives is an excellent motivator.
I will run the miles, and I will run them with a huge amount of gratitude that I have never had to fight for my life, and I have the health to run for no other reason than... I can.
I am able.
Each footfall will be a reminder of a child's oncology appointment rather than pool party. A surgery rather than a baseball game. A chemo treatment rather than trick or treating.
Each mile will mark another life altered forever... a childhood that isn't carefree and the parents who are supporting their babies in the fight.
My childhood felt safe. I never wondered if I would grow up. These kids are faced with a whole lot of growing up at a young age.
Thank you ever so much (in advance) for your contribution.
