Cheryl's First Marathon - to benefit Smashing Walnuts
Organized by: Cheryl Onderchain
On October 30th I am running 26.2 miles to help raise awareness for and fund research to find a cure for childhood brain cancer. What is Smashing Walnuts? At 9 years old, Gabriella Miller was diagnosed with DIPG, an inoperable brain tumor that was the size of a walnut. Realizing how little awareness and funding there was for childhood cancer and particularly childhood brain cancer, Gabriella quickly became a global advocate for children with cancer and started the Smashing Walnuts Foundation. Gabriella was only 10 years old when she passed away in 2013. Her family now continues her mission of awareness. Smashing Walnuts is Gabriella’s legacy, founded to give kids like her a fighting chance.
