Marathon Sunday is fast approaching - I'm psyced and feel ready! Along with my effort I am hoping to raise funds for 2 fabulous organizations - Matt's Promise and the National MS Society. I would love to make this run about something bigger than myself...
Matt's Promise was founded by my cousin Matt after he was diagnosed with Cancer as a young family man at the age of 33. Matt was a vibrant, funny, caring man who died within a year of his diagnosis. Matt's Promise is a foundation dedicated to helping young adults who are terminally ill by funding research, new treatments, education, and support groups. The foundationwas very important to Matt and I would love to honor his memory by supporting its works.
The National MS Society "is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. MS stops people from moving. The MS Society exists to make sure it doesn't". Hillel and I know and love several people living with MS. This is an organization near and dear to our hearts.
Please help me reach my goal of raising $2,000 by Marathon sunday so I can contribute (at least!) $1,000 to each of these worthy organizations.
Thanks, and look for updates from me about the race!
