BENEFITING: CELEBRATE LIFE HALF MARATHON
EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2014
I decided to take the plunge and sign up for the Celebrate Life Half Marathon that has been in the back of my mind since I heard about it from a friend in November. There are a million reasons running (no pun intended) through my head why I can't and shouldn't do this, but the fact that all proceeds from the race go to helping local people who are battling cancer has compelled me to participate and push my running to the next level. I am doing my best to fulfill my training plan. I ask that you consider supporting me by supporting the wonderful cause that is inspiring me to take on this challenge. No donation is too small and the event itself does not require that I raise additional funds to participate. Any support you can give me and this cause is appreciated. Cancer touches too many lives, and until we find a cure, we need to do all we can to help people FIGHT. I am running to honor Cristy Beemer, one of my best friends who beat breast cancer. On my mind and in my heart will be both of my grandmothers and everyone in my life that cancer has hurt. On a personal level, I have seen the battle that those who receive a cancer diagnosis must fight and if doing this can help, even a little, then I am humbled to be able to play a role in helping them win.
