BENEFITING: PROVIDENCE PORTLAND MEDICAL FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2014
Every year, we choose an event to raise money for Cancer Awareness and to find a cure for Cancer.
This year is no different...however, we are using our annual Hood To Coast Relay participation to raise money.
Providence Cancer Research Center is a leading research center in the US for Cancer Patients to be treated...and hopefully to one day to find a cure for this dreaded disease.
As a cancer survivor myself, I am proud to be raising fund for Providence Cancer Research Center. One key reason is Mike Swartout, a great friend and co-worker at Classic Exhibits. Mike is currently battling cancer and has been directly impacted by unbelievable research and work at Providence.
To be blunt, my friend Mike should not still be here. He was given a terminal diagnosis more than 4 years ago, but with the help of the great folks at Providence Cancer Research, Mike is still with us all -- his friends, family, and co-workers.
Please take a few moments and donate to our team. We will be running 199 miles! Yes, 199 miles of running non-stop to raise money and to support those who are dealing with Cancer and their families.
Our goal is modest -- to raise $20,000. Please help me meet that goal with your contribution.
In trade for your donation, I will run with the name of your loved one, friend, or family member who is either battling or who has lost their battle with Cancer. Just let me know their name, and I will proudly wear it on my back as I run every mile.
