THE STORY:

Family and Friends,

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I am extremely excited and honored to be running the New York City Marathon this November in support of the Concern Foundation.

After taking part in numerous half marathons in past years, I have made it one of my life goals to run in and complete a full marathon. The initial thought of doubling the distance of a half marathon and running a full marathon, 42.2km, had seemed daunting and unrealistic….. until now!

A colleague of mine recently presented me with the opportunity to not only participate in the prestigious New York City Marathon, but also provided me with the opportunity to run in support of an amazing charity, the Concern Foundation.

The Concern Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to raising and granting funds to support cancer research worldwide. Concern has provided grants to over 650 gifted cancer researchers at major institutions locally, nationally and around the world.  With $.95 of every dollar given to research, over $50 million has been raised and granted to make significant contributions that are moving us closer to conquering cancer.

Similarly to myself, I am sure that this disease has affected your life or the ones you love in some way. Through my personal experiences, I have seen the effects that cancer can have on the individual as well as their friends and family. By helping me support this cause through donations both small and large, we can together help ease the pain caused by such a disease and help advance the fight for a cure.

Please join me in my mission to support the Concern Foundation in raising money that will one day put an end to this awful disease.  Every contribution is greatly appreciated.

Thank you all very much!!

Vanessa
