BENEFITING: Jack H Marston II Melanoma Fund
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I am very excited to have joined Jack's Marathon Team again this year. I will run both the 2016 Chicago Marathon (on Oct. 9 th) and the 2016 New York City Marathon (on Nov. 9th) to help raise funds to support the fight against Melanoma - the most common form of cancer.
My wife Nancy and her cousin Nora are both Melanoma survivors - primarly due to early detection. Nancy and I are both committed to helping raise awareness of the importance of the proper use of sunscreen, high SPF clothing and other measures to prevent incidences of Melanoma, especially in children. Furthermore over the past 8 years running with Jack's Team I have come to know many other runners who have lost one of their families members to Melanoma.
I hope you can make a tax deductable donation to the Jack Marston II Melanoma Fund, and know, all money collected is used to fund: 1) medical research grants, 2) programs to raise awareness of Melanoma, and 3) screening programs for early detection of Melanoma.
