BENEFITING: JAMES BLAKE FOUNDATION INC
ORGANIZER: JAMES BLAKE FOUNDATION INC
I couldn't be more excited to be running the NYC Marathon in November, and what makes it even better is using the race to raise funds for a cause I believe in. Having just started my medicine residency at UConn, I see first hand the devastating effects cancer can have on individuals and families. The answer is research. Join me in supporing the James Blake Foundation and your moola will go to early detection cancer research.
What also makes this race so exciting for me is that I get to do it with my little sister Chrissy, aka Boogus. I've run several marathons with my brother Matt, but this is the first one Chris and I will do together. This race is also in our backyard from where we grew up in Fairfield CT, where Mom and Dad still live. To know I'll be running this race side by side with Chrissy, with my family and friends watching on is going to be a wonderful experience.
With 6 weeks out, and minimal training under my belt, I can promise you this: this race is going to hurt! But knowing that my family and friends are nearby and that I've raised life changing funds for early cancer detection and the James Blake Foundation, makes it totally worth it! Thank you for your support!
