A Marathon Limerick - Part I

"Now bid me run, and I will strive with things impossible" - Shakespeare
JAF provides financial assistance to patients and families undergoing cancer treatment, helping them better focus on the battle to get well rather than the battle to juggle bills.
Though we as JAF charity runners may raise funds in the literal sense, we in actuality make a contribution far beyond monetary value -- those dollars raised support something intangible and truly unquantifiable: a patient’s peace of mind, a sense of security, a feeling of hope.
In helping to ease a patient's finanial burdens while he or she manages treatment, I have the unique ability to give somone these special gifts: a sounder sleep through the night, a feeling closer to 'normal' in a not-so-normal situation, more quality time around the dinner table with family.
Fundraising by Team JAF runners directly supports the Foundation’s mission of providing help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families -- and I'm so thrilled to run once again for JAF and MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
