I am just your average 30 something year old male. I have gone through an ordinary life doing ordinary things. When my Father was recently diagnosed with cancer I decided it was time to do a little more. Cancer has claimed so many people in my life that it is almost impossible to think about. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and friends have all been lost to cancer. I dont pretend to believe that I am going to change the world, but would like to make a differnece no matter how big or how small.
One of my favorite past times is running, and on May 4th 2014 I will be running my first marathon, The Pittsburgh Marathon. My Parents were planning to fly up for the race, which made it even more important. However, since my father is ill they will not be attending. I know my Father will be proud when I call him after I am finished with the race, and knowing I raised funds to fight cancer will mean so much to him make him even prouder.
This is one little thing I can do, and maybe it will spiral into a bigger thing. Maybe that will spiral into a great thing, I have know way of knowing. Much like running starts by lacing up and putting one foot in front of the other, so does my campaign. I will put one foot in front of the other for all those who have lost the fight, all those who continue to fight, and in the hopes that no one will ever have to fight this disease again.
