THE STORY:

2018 UPDATE: Donate to our newlywed OMF fundraiser!


On November 2nd, I will run the New York Marathon in honor of my mom, Lillian Riley Trimboli, who ten years ago passed away after battling ocular melanoma -- eye cancer.

Those who know me know that Lil is the reason I run, the inspiration in every stride. Lil conquered endurance events throughout her short career including the Pikes Peak Marathon, Leadville Trail 100 and more -- all while blind in her right eye, which surgeons removed when she was first diagnosed in her late 20s.

I will run the New York Marathon wearing an eye patch (half-blind!) if you help me reach my goal of raising $2620 for the Ocular Melanoma Foundation.

Thanks for supporting this cause; it's very near and dear to my heart!

--Brendan

I still remember when I told your mom I didn't sign up for 7th grade cross country, and her response was a simple "wuss". Her voice still motivates me to sign up for races today. 5 years ago
