BENEFITING: The V Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
Thank you for visiting our page.
Three friends from college with a shared interest in running are excited to run the TCS New York City Marathon this November 5th. We are equally excited to support a cause that resonates so strongly with us and many others.
Running for the V Foundation, a charity devoted to defeating cancer through scientific research, we hope to help those running a race far more difficult than any marathon. Personally aware of the devastating effects of cancer, having seen the toll it takes on loved ones and friends, we believe the V Foundation is supporting the research that will truly make a difference.
We hope that you will join us on this race to defeat cancer and look forward to seeing you at the finish line.
About the Charity: The V Foundation has awarded more than $170 million, which has been used to fund cancer research grants nationwide. Last year alone, 1,685,210 people in the US were diagnosed with cancer and 595,690 died. Every dollar raised brings us closer to the medical advances that will cure this lethal affliction.
