BENEFITING: Prevent Cancer Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2010
I am running my first half-marathon on October 9th, to raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. While the causes of cancer remain hard to pin down, I think it's important to do all that we can to prevent it and to make sure that everyone has access to testing and preventative care.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation advocates and supports the prevention and early detection of cancer through research, education and community outreach to all populations, including children and the underserved.
They do this by:
1. funding research that helps us better understand how to prevent cancer;
2. educating people about how they can prevent cancer; and
3. reaching out to communities across the country through our resources, events and partnerships with other organizations.
I'm ready to get some blisters on my feet and run to raise money for this foundation. I welcome you to run alongside me or to pave the way by donating funds towards this cause.
Thank you and love.
