BENEFITING: MOMMY AND ME CANCER FOUNDATION
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2014
Hello Family and Friends,
Thank you so much for taking the time to view my page. I am racing in the Nike Half Marathon on October 19, 2014, and have decided to raise funds for Mommy and Me Cancer Foundation.
I know that each and every one of us has been touched to some degree by this widespread disease, whether it be someone we know intimately that has the disease or has passed fighting this disease. I know there are many organizations out there that raise funds for cancer, however, I chose Mommy and Me Foundation because of the unique opportunity they offer of meeting the individuals that are actually going to benefit from your dollars. The recipients are mothers with minor children who need assistance with a variety of things, such as the following:
1. Financial Support (out of pocket medical costs, utility bills, meal cards, grocery cards, family breaks)
2. Peer Support (Quarterly Mommy Luncheons)
3. Family Break
4. Hair Replacement
5. Connection to resources such as Beckstrand or Walk With Sally.
I can't imagine having to work, taking care of a family and fighting cancer. Anything I can do to help these brave women, wives and mothers on their journey I pledge to do. I hope you feel the same.
We are all in this together.
