BENEFITING: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION
EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Oct 27, 2013
Please watch the attached video about Prayers from Maria. Ed and Megan have been such an inspiration that I am excited to be running my 2nd marathon to benefit this great cause. My goal is to raise $600.00 and "under 5 or bust" is my goal to finish the race in under 5 hours.
Prayers From Maria is proud to be a charity partner of the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon. Our team members are raising funds that will go directly to children's glioma brain tumor research.
Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer each year. One-third of those children are diagnosed with brain tumors, and nearly half of those brain tumors are gliomas. Over 97% of children with the worst of the gliomas, diffuse pontine gliomas, die within three years. We cannot ignore this shocking statistic, and we hope that you won’t either. We need your help.
The Prayers from Maria Foundation is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas; raising public awareness about gliomas and bringing hope to children and their families who deal with the hardships of this disease.
Please support our team by making a donation today!
No federal or Marine Corps endorsement is implied.
