BENEFITING: JULIEN COLLOT FOUNDATION INC

EVENT: NYC Half 2011

EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011

Christine Connelly

THE STORY:

As most of you know, I am an Occupational Therapist working for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). However, only a few may have heard the story of the amazing Julien Collot, so I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you all to him. I had the privilege of treating Julien during the last year of his battle against cancer and the devastating side effects of his treatment. When Julien was 3 years old he was diagnosed with AML, which is an adult type of leukemia that is rare in children. He underwent two bone marrow transplants and as a result of the second, developed graft-vs-host disease or GVHD (click on the video to learn more about GVHD from Julien's mom and Ju Ju himself). On March 20th I ran in the NYC 1/2 Marathon to honor Julien's life and raise money for the Julien Collot Foundation, a non-profit, IRS credited charity (www.thejuliencollotfoundation.org). The money donated to the foundation will go to the bone marrow transplant research team at MSKCC to help children like Julien fight AML and other childhood cancers.

Julien found the strength to fight everyday with the support of his amazing mother and loving father, and it has been the memories of him during our therapy sessions that got me through some of my long, cold runs. My goal was to raise AT LEAST $803 to celebrate the 8 years and 3 months of Julien's life, however the donating does not have to stop:) IF you are interested in Jogging for Julien yourself, check out Marc Viloria's awesome crowdrise page at www.crowdrise.com/run4julien and register to run in the NJ Marathon on May 1st . . . you can run a 1/2, a full or as part of a relay to complete the marathon (register at  www.njmarathon.org).  Join either the Jogging for Julien or the Run for Julien teams on crowdrise to raise money for the Julien Collot Foundation and spread the word to make an even bigger difference in the lives of these children!!
