Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my fundraising site.
Most of you probably remember my story from the last time I was crazy enough to run a marathon (if you're not familiar, check it out here: http://www.razoo.com/story/Jen-Muckley-Running-For-Bob).
Well, two years later I'm back at it again (had to take a break for a little thing called a Master's Degree) and I'm so thankful for everyone who has stuck it out with me and for all of my new friends and family who have no idea what I'm getting into with this "marathon training" but they'll soon realize when I'm comparing notes on how different power bars make me feel on my runs and how many toenails might fall off soon!
Far more importantly, I have made a very special commitment again to raise funds to support melanoma research and awareness while training for the Chicago Marathon. As most of you know, this cause is very close to my heart and I will be running in memory of my father, Bob Muckley who lost his battle with melanoma on November 8, 2011.
Melanoma is the fastest growing cancer in the United States and worldwide. One person dies every 60 minutes from melanoma. And, there is no effective medical therapy for metastatic melanoma.
I'm taking on this challenge to do something big that will increase awareness and support research for the CURE.
I hope you'll support me in my efforts! Please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation to help me achieve my goal.
Many thanks and much love!
