BENEFITING: CELEBRATE LIFE HALF MARATHON
EVENT DATE: Mar 13, 2016
Hi, I'm Cristie! On March 13, 2016, I'll be running 13.1 miles at the Celebrate Life Half Marathon, in Rock Hill, NY, for the fifth year. Each year, I run this race in honor of all of those who not only lost their battles to cancer, but for those who are actively fighting, and those who have completely overcome this horrific disease. This race is very close to my heart because my father, Richard Bendi, lost his battle to cancer on April 22, 2012. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him, remeniss of the great times we shared, or wish for one more day. Even though I know he watches over his grandson and I each day, his lost battle has inspired me to help others in our community. 100% of your donation goes to individuals in Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster County who are fighting cancer and need in desperate need for financial assistance. These heroic people should be spending every bit of energy focusing on getting better, without the burden of how medical bills, their mortgage, cars, food, etc will be paid. Your donations will go directly to local applicants who are in need, No amount in too small. Thank you so much!
