Hi everyone! My name is Elly and a few months ago I decided to sign up for my first half marathon! In addition to the personal accomplishment I'm expecting to feel at the end of 13.1 miles, I thought I'd run this race for something bigger than myself. I have chosen, among the large variety of amazing charities, to run for the Susan G. Komen foundation. If you don't know, the Susan G. Komen foundation focuses on educating, researching, and finding a cure for breast cancer. As of recently, my family has been greatly affected by this disease with the passing of my beautiful grandmother. The disease had taken her from us far to early. I want to run this race for her and the many other families that understand the effects of this disease all to well. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated! Thank you for listening [or reading] and remember to stay awesome!
