I have embarked on the chance of a lifetime! I am running the NYC Marathon November 6, 2016. This is something I never thought I would be able to do, but I was presented with the opportunity I couldn't pass up on! I am running with an amazing team...Team V
I ran with Team V for the Raleigh Rock-n-Roll half marathon in April of 2015 where I raise over $750 for The V Foundation for Cancer Research. I thought that would be it, but now I'm running with Team V in New York! This time I have committed to raising $3,250 for cancer research. To meet this goal, I need your help. Any donation amount is appreciated. Seeing all of your generosity is keeping me motivated...especially during those long Saturday morning runs.
So, please join me in raising money for cancer research. 100% of your donation goes towards research. Just click on the red "DONATE" button. I will be so appreciative and I promise you won't regret it.
The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and former award-winning NC State basketball coach Jim Valvano. Coach Valvano was diagnosed with cancer in 1993. When he created the Foundation, he knew that it was too late for research to save him. But he spent his last months alive creating a legacy of hope for others diagnosed with this debilitating disease.
In the past 22 years, The V Foundation has awarded more than $150 million to cancer research and related programs nationwide.
Jim Valvano’s “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”® spirit is alive now more than ever. And it is the perfect motto to carry us through the largest marathon in the world. With continued support, we will forge ahead with innovative research. Join us on Team V or support us through a donation – either way, you are making a difference and saving lives.
