BENEFITING: STUPID CANCER

ORGANIZER: STUPID CANCER

Melinda Hood

THE STORY:

In the summer of 2008 I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. In 2010, I found out about this amazing charity called Stupid Cancer. Stupid Cancer provides peer support, education, and advocacy for young adults with cancer. Getting involved with this group has changed my life and provided me with an amazing support system I never knew I needed. 

In 2011, I ran my first half marathon for Team Stupid Cancer. Since then I have run 3 more half marathons and multiple 5Ks. It's my way of giving back to an organization that has given so much to me. I will be running 7 races between now and CancerCon to celebrate 7 years cancer free!  It is also a way for me to honor those members of the Stupid Cancer family who are no longer with us. #7for7

Please give generously to help me reach my goal of $2000. 

Race Schedule (subject to change):

October 31, 2015 - Dash to the Finish Line 5K

November 7, 2015 - Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K

December 5, 2015 - NYCRuns Hot Chocolate 10K

January 24, 2016 - Fred Lebow Half (volunteer)
