THE STORY:

     
     1 Determined Irishman
+   157.2 miles
===================
     1 Step Closer to a Cure

Gerry will run a half marathon for every month of 2016 to honor the people he knows who have been affected by cancer and to raise money for cancer research and support.

All donations will go directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute which provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases.

Gerry's goal is to raise $63 for every mile he runs. At 157.2 miles, that would raise $10,000! All donations, whether great or small, would be so appreciated.

Gerry also has pink "Gerry's Run for a Cure" t-shirts available for $10 each. All proceeds to also benefit Dana Farber.

NOVEMBER UPDATE:

As of  October 9th Gerry reached (and beat!) his goal by completing his final race of 2016. For this last race, rather than do a half marathon, Gerry completed a FULL marathon -- The Chicago Marathon. Way to finish with a bang, Gerry!

We are all so proud of Gerry's hard work and commitment. Thank you so much to all who have contributed and helped Gerry keep the momentum going. It has made all the difference!

For those who are still interested in helping, Gerry is hoping to reach his goal of raising $10,000 by the end of the year.  Any donation is greatly appreciated, whether large or small. 

Thank you so much for all of the support - whether a kind word, a donation or showing up at an event - it has kept Gerry going and made a real difference in the battle against cancer. 

Blessings to all of you this holiday season!
