BENEFITING: 911 FOR NECK AND HEAD CANCER
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
In July 2012, I lost a very dear friend to cancer. In his memory and to help others who are in the same struggle, I am running the Maryland Half Marathon on May 11 and raising funds for an outstanding charity: 911 4 HNC.
The 911 4 HNC website describes their work:
911 4 HNC means “Help for Head and Neck Cancer.” This is a unique fund dedicated to granting financial aid directly to patients who have or had head and neck cancer (HNC). Unlike many other foundations, ours does not give dollars to research. We support only individuals and their families in the locations where money is raised.
Improving the quality of life for those with head and neck cancer is the foremost goal of this endeavor.
