BENEFITING: ENDURE TO CURE PEDIATRIC CANCER FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: ENDURE TO CURE PEDIATRIC CANCER FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
When I decided to sign up for my first marathon, I decided to go big. Chicago is one of the biggest marathons in the country. I had no idea what it was all about. All I knew was that you showed up and knocked out a 26.2 mile run. I quickly found out that there is much more that can go into it. When I read that you can partner up with a team and pledge to raise money for a charity I was so filled with joy that my personal goal to run this race could become more than just my own goal but I, and with a lot of help from friends and family, could reach out to families in need also.
There were so many great causes to choose from that all mean a lot to me. I hold a special place in my heart for all the kiddos and their families that are unfortunate enough to be faced with cancer. Childhood cancer is probably one of the toughest things for any parent to have to struggle with for their children. It is something you cannot possibly mentally prepare yourself for. It is also something you cannot financially prepare for. Endure to Cure Pediatric Cancer Foundation pledges that 100% of the funds raised by our teams members will go straight to the families needing assistance. I have already received several stories of some families that have been reached.
By helping me reach my goal I can make pledges to you as well:
- I will work my hardest from now until I cross the finish line to do my very best.
- I will continue to update this page and my Facebook as well so that you can follow my road to helping this cause.
- I will keep my training schedule and goals up to date so I can be followed.
- I will share the stories of families helped by this amazing organization as well!
Please, if you can, help this awesome team meet our goal. $1500 is the minimum we must raise individually to run the race for the team but I will do my best to raise awareness to raise as much as possible! We have until September 30! On that day I will be making up the difference so that my race bib is not pulled! Thanks everyone and cheers!!
