BENEFITING: CELEBRATE LIFE HALF MARATHON
EVENT DATE: Mar 10, 2013
On March 10, 2013, I will be Celebrating Life by running the 10th annual Celebrate Life Half Marathon (13.1 miles), run near Rock Hill, NY. 100% of the proceeds from the run will be used to help alleviate specific needs of survivors and people afflicted with cancer, via CROC (Citizens Reunited to Overcome Cancer).
Each and every one of us can relate to this horrible, debilitating, and life taking disease. Cancer in any form knows no age, gender, ethnic background or social status. As many of you know, cancer has taken my Grandpa and Aunt Linda away from me and my family. I am currently training and will be running this race in honor of these two incredible people who have affected my life beyond words. Throughout every step of the 13.1 miles, I will be thinking of the strength, courage, and love that they were able to show during such a difficult, tiring, and unfair time. If there is one thing that I have learned, it is to always celebrate the good in our lives, and keep on fighting through the bad. If they were able to do it, so can I. I know that they will be cheering me on and helping me reach the finish line, making this journey that much more meaningful.
Please help me Celebrate Life and fundraise to honor my Aunt Linda and my Grandpa by making a donation on behalf of this amazing charity. Scroll through the pictures to catch a glimpse of some of the happiness that these people have brought to our lives.
Never stop fighting.
