THE STORY:

Friends-

I will be running the Chicago Half Marathon on September 9 and the Chicago Lung Run 10K on September 15 in memory/support of my Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle who all had/have Lung Cancer.  

I will be donating $1 for every mile that I run in my 20-week training leading up to these two events. I am estimating that my weekly mileage contributions alone will add up to over $300!!

I am raising money on my own for this cause because it is very close to my family. I am not obligated to raise anything, so any donation amount will help and is much appreciated!  Seriously.  Even a $1 donation is totally cool.  What can you really buy with $1 these days anyway?  

FYI...The minimum donation amount on Crowdrise is $10, but if you would like to donate an amount under $10, you can pay me offline and I will post it on this site for you!  I accept cash (that's those green pieces of paper that nobody uses anymore), check, PayPal, money order, coins, unused Chuck E Cheese tokens, gold pieces, etc.  Seriously.  If you want to donate money in any form, I will take it!

Lung Cancer Fact:  Lung cancer kills more people each year than breast, colon, pancreatic, and prostate cancers COMBINED.

All donations will go to The Lung Cancer Foundation of America.

Cancer Sucks.  Let's do something about it.

Thank you for your support!
