EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
I have been planning to run my first NYC Half but it wasn't until recently that I considered using this opportunity to raise money for a good cause. I have lost multiple family members to cancer and just recently another person very close to me has been diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Please support me in raising money for the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation so one day we can eliminate this terrible disease. 100% of donations fund cancer research.
"To accelerate breakthroughs, the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation provides today's best young scientists with funding to pursue innovative cancer research. We support emerging leaders who have great potential to achieve breakthroughs in how we diagnose, treat and prevent cancer. Our goals are to: Identify the best and brightest early career scientists in cancer research; Accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries into new diagnostic tools and treatments; Enable risk taking on bold new ideas. Since 1946, the Foundation has invested over $235 million in more than 3,250 of the best and brightest scientists in the nation."
