BENEFITING: JAMES BLAKE FOUNDATION INC
ORGANIZER: JAMES BLAKE FOUNDATION INC
When I decided to run the marathon through supporting a charity, the James Blake foundation was and easy choice for me. My mother has dedicated her nursing career to studies finding new ways to detect and to treat pancreatic cancer at Johns Hopkins. Her career choice was in some ways inspired by my grandmother, a L&D nurse in her day. Soon after I decided to run the NYC marathon by raising money for a charity, my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer for the second time in her life.
I'm running this marathon for the two biggest influences in my life, my mother and Amma. It is truly my pleasure to support a cause impacting my family, and so many other families. I hope you are able to support the James Blake foundation in any way you can and I look forward to meeting my running and fundraising goals!
