BENEFITING: Cancer Research Institute, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2018
DAYS TO GO: 76
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and considering making a donation toward my charity of choice: the Cancer Research Institute. Nearly everyone has had a loved one or friend affected by cancer and the stats are staggering: over 40% of people born today will get cancer during their lifetime. I've watched family and friends suffer and I've had to say goodbye to some very special people way too soon. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. It's time that we find a cure and on November 4th, I'll be running in the NYC Marathon for this cause. I want to make this next marathon bigger than just a proud running accolade; I want to help make a difference. I pledge to run those 26.2 miles with every ounce of determination and strength in me in remembrance of my friends and family and all of my friends' friends and family who didn't have a chance and are no longer with us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. I'll be thinking of you when I race through the 5 boroughs. Who knows, maybe I'll even PR with my angels looking down, cheering me on! xo Jess
