I just signed up for the 2015 United Airlines New York City Half Marathon.
Not only will I be training like crazy for my run, but more importantly, I’m going to leverage all that training and hard work to help raise money for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation and the fight against colorectal cancer. Funds raised will go to life saving public awareness, prevention, screening and research programs aimed all focused on reducing the number of loved ones we lose to this preventable, treatable and beatable disease.
I'm reaching out to everyone I know to help me raise my goal of $1000 for this cause. Any amount you can give is so appreciated.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer of women and men in the US. Over 150,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer this year and sadly more than 1/3 will lose their battle with this often silent killer. There is hope however, over 60% of cases could be prevented with screening. And, more than 30% of cases could be eliminated by incorporating a healthy diet and exercise!
I dedicate this run to all my friends and family that have lost a loved one because of this disease. I especially want to take a moment to dedicate this run in loving memory of my best friend’s dad Leonard David Weiss. Taken too soon but never forgotten!
Thank you so much for your support
