Eun Jung is Running for Wilson
Organized by: Eun Jung Decker
Event Name: Running for Wilson
EVENT DATE Sep 15, 2014
I will be running 80 miles over the next eight weeks starting today (July 15) to raise funds for Wilson Gregory, a two year old with stage IV neuroblastoma, and Alex's Lemonade Stand.
All funds raised will be split 50-50 to Wilson's family and Alex's Lemonade Stand.
I hope you are able to join us in this amazing opportunity to make a huge difference in the world. I feel grateful that I am able to do this, and I hope you will share in the spirit of doing good in this world. Let's make it great!
Information about our two very worthy recipients:
Wilson Gregory was diagnosed with stage IV, high - risk neuroblastoma in May 2013. He was just under one year old. Since his diagnosis, Wilson has endured four surgeries, six rounds of chemotherapy, an autologous stem cell transplant, 32 rounds of radiation, and countless hospitalizations for fevers. He is now undergoing immunotherapy. The money we raise for the Wilson family will help to offset some of the enormous costs of battling cancer.
Alex's Lemonade Stand is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise money and raise awareness for childhood cancer causes, especially research into new treatments and cures. The money they raise is used to fund more than 450 cutting edge-research projects nation wide, create a travel program to help support families of children receiving treatment, and develop resources to help people everywhere affected by childhood cancer.
