EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014

THE STORY:

I am running the 2014 NYC Marathon. 

I have gained entry to the NYC Marathon through the lottery, but want to run for a cause that I care deeply about: finding a cure for cancer. My goal is to raise $100 for each of the 26.22 miles of running!

This is "kickstater" meets "a good cause" - if you donate the following amounts, I promise to deliver on the prizes. 

$10 - You have just take the first step forward towards a better world. I will think of you and the cause we support together during the 26 miles of running.

$20 - I will think of you and the cause we support together during the 26 miles of running and will send you a thank you email with a picture upon finishing.

$26.22 - One dollar per mile!  I will think of you and the cause we support together during the 26 miles of running, will send you a thank you card with funny anecdotes, some sweat, and a signed picture upon finishing. 

$50 -  I will think of you and the cause we support together during the 26 miles of running, will send you a thank you card with funny anecdotes, some sweat, and a signed picture upon finishing, and will write your name with a sharpy on my shirt for your sponsorship of the cause.

$100 - Bronze Cheerleader: All of the above + I will stop during the marathon and take a picture with you if you are on the sideline on race day or at the finish line (limit: 20).  

$200 - Silver Cheerleader: All of the above + I will mail you one used (washed) article of clothing I wore during the race (limit: 7)

$300 - Gold Cheerleader:  All of the above + I will wear any article of clothing you want me to wear for the starting mile (limit: 5).

$500+ - Diamond Cheerleader: All of the above + I will die my hair the color of your choice (limit: 2)

Note: you can team up with friends to reach any of these limits.

The important part:

All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. 

Thanks to the research and resources invested in finding a cure for cancer, the 5-year relative survival rate for cancer is up to 68% today from 49% in the 1970s. However, cancer is still the second leading cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease, and accounts for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths. About 1.6 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2014. While living a healthy lifestyle can help reduce our risk of cancer, we are all potential victims and should all be advocates for a cure.

We are all involved.

Thank you for your support.
