BENEFITING: The Ellie Fund
ORGANIZER: The Ellie Fund
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am thrilled that I will be running the 2015 Boston Marathon to support the Ellie Fund, an organization close to my heart. As a breast cancer survivor, I have wanted to help others who have to find their way through a cancer diagnosis. I was blessed to have had the friends, family and resources to beat this. Not everyone is as luck as I was. The Ellie Fund provides critical support services including transportation to medical appointments, childcare, housekeeping, groceries, and nutritious prepared/delivered meals free of charge to hundreds of women and family members across Massachusetts each year.
Please consider supporting me on my personal goal to raise $10,000 to help change the lives of the women, men and children that are affected by cancer.
The Ellie Fund was founded in 1995 by Jeff and Eliot Popkin to honor their mother Eleanor’s courageous battle against breast cancer and the giving spirit for which she was known throughout her life. The Ellie Fund fights breast cancer by easing its effect on woman, men and families across Massachusetts. A breast cancer diagnosis means physical, emotional and financial stress, not only for the patient, but the entire family. The Ellie Fund provides a strong support system to help alleviate the effects of breast cancer and allow the patient, and their family, to focus on what matters – healing.
I am truly grateful and honored to have your support!
