BENEFITING: AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Mileage Tracker: 26
I'm raising money for the American Cancer Society's "Hope Lodge" in New York City. My brother William "Buck" Gold was diagnosed with Leukemia last December and lived at Hope Lodge free of charge for nearly six months. He received a life-saving bone marrow transplant from my other brother and today is cancer free. Hope Lodge is a residence for people receiving outpatient treatment at nearby hospitals in NYC. My brother's wife and children live five hours away in upstate NY, so living at Hope Lodge allowed him to stay in mid-town Manhattan while receiving world-class care at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Bucky and his wife have remarked many times what a gift Hope Lodge and the remarkable volunteers there have been. Anything you can offer to keep Hope Lodge running would be appreciated. $20, $30 anything would be great. I figured I'm running the LA Marathon anyway, might as well help put a few dollars in the coffers of a wonderful cause. -- Gina
