As many of you know, I have a passion for running. One of my dreams is to be able to participate in the NYC marathon. I have been inspired to try to achieve this dream by my dear friend and running pal, Larry.
Larry had a brain tumor removed in March and was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. He is in the process of starting radiation and chemo. He has asked me to join him and support him in his wish to run the 2011 NYC marathon on November 6th.
We chose The Kortney Rose Foundation and will be running as part of "Team Kortney" Together we are collecting sponsers for the Kortney Rose Foundation (KRF), which is 501 (c) (3), which raises money for pediatric brain cancer research and awareness.
Kortney's story has inpired us to run. She was a 9 year old girl with a winning personality whose life was cut short by a brain cancer. She was diagnosed in December of 2005 and died only 4 short months later in April 2006. Her parents started the Kortney Rose Foundation to create a legacy for Kortney of helping other children with brain tumors through the promise of research.
I am running the marathon, which is 26.2 miles. I am hoping you will be so kind to sponsor me $1 or more a mile. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children suffering from brain tumors, as we work to GET BRAIN TUMORS OFF KIDS' MINDS!
Thank you for help! Please make donations directly through this sponser page. For more information about The Kortney Rose Foundation. Please visit www.kortneyrosefoundation.org
