BENEFITING: Jack H Marston II Melanoma Fund
ORGANIZER: Jack H Marston II Melanoma Fund
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I'm running the NYC 2011 Marathon for Jack's Team in honor of my husband, Gavin Snow, who died in February 2011 after living with melanoma for six years.
Gavin was an awesome guy, an athlete, a risk-taker, an artist, a loving friend, brother, son, and husband. He told me before he died that he didn't believe I would ever finish a marathon - I'm out to prove him wrong, and to eradicate Melanoma in the process. Melanoma is an awful, horrible and currently incurable, untreatable disease. Dollars for reasearch funding and awareness are the only way to a cure.
Please join me and Jack's team in raising money to fight Melanoma in Gavin's honor.
Thanks everyone - I love you.
