BENEFITING: Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation, Inc
EVENT DATE: Jun 19, 2016
I have a lot of friends with balls, and I will go the extra (3.2)mile(s) for them!
I'm running the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer 5K on Sunday, June 19th. No, I don't have testicles, but every hour of every day, one man is diagnosed with testicular cancer. Men that I know and love!!! And while this affecting one very special man has hit us all in a very personal way, I'm running so that there will be adequate funds to help everyone. Cancer sucks, but with enough money going to the right hands, we can call make a real difference.
If you don't follow Humans of NY on Facebook and/or Instagram, he recently did a fundraiser for pediatric cancers that raised over $3 MILLION dollars! And I was really moved by one of doctors who said that this money made such a significant difference in their search for a cure. It's out there!!! Let's all hope for a world where these types of fundraisers are obsolete and we don't live in fear of our friends getting sick ever again.
(And if you want to run with me, I'd love to have you on my team!)
With love and gratitude,
