BENEFITING: Imerman Angels
ORGANIZER: Imerman Angels
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2017
Dear friends -
Team Imerman Angels is building a team for the Detroit Marathon events which include the Marathon, International Half-Marathon, US Half-Marathon, Marathon Relay (segment distances from 3-7 miles) and the 5K. As many of you know, last year I ran the International Half-Marathon on Team Imerman Angels. While 13 miles seemed a little ambitious with my schedule this year, I still wanted to be a part of Team Imerman Angels and help spread their important message. So, I am excited and honored to participate in the Detroit Marathon as part of a relay team!
WHY IMERMAN ANGELS?: Imerman Angels is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide personalized connections that enable 1-on-1 support among cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. At Imerman Angels, the goal is for no one to ever have to face cancer alone. To date, Imerman Angels has provided over 29,000 connections in 50 states and 60 countries. They receive over 100 requests for support each week and satisfy these requests free of charge.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?: I have been in training and am going to give it my all during my 6 mile leg running through the streets of Windsor and back through the tunnel to Detroit, but I need your donations to make a real difference. For every $350 we raise during this campaign, another fighter/survivor or caregiver/caregiver connection will be made. Through my efforts and your support, I hope to fund 2 connections, which means that I need to raise $700. One in three individuals is diagnosed with cancer in his or her lifetime and can benefit from this service. Please be as generous as you can with your donation. I truly appreciate your generosity and support.
