EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2013
On October 20th, I will be running the Blue-Gray half marathon in Gettysburg, PA and I am looking for your support. I am dedicating this race to Penn State’s dance marathon, THON. This student-run philanthropy provides not only financial but also emotional support for families with children with pediatric cancer.
As a student at Penn State, I have become very involved in THON. This year I am serving as one of the two family relations chairs for Axis, an organization that fundraises for THON. More importantly, Axis has the honor of supporting the Calvanelli family. Nicole and Joe, the parents of 5-year-old Ayrton, are amazingly strong individuals. I hope to channel some of their strength on my 13.1-mile run.
I would greatly appreciate your sponsorship and support as I run a half marathon in honor of the Calvanelli’s and THON.
