Why do I run? I ask myself this everytime as I'm painfully trying to reach the finish line. As much temporary pain I'm in while I'm running, there is someone in REAL pain that is incapable of even walking comfortably.
I run to help those who are battling that evil disease called CANCER. I run to inspire those who don't believe in themselves. I run to prove that anything can be done as long as you put in work.
I am running 26.2 miles at the Marine Corps Marathon (aka THE PEOPLE'S RUN) on October 27, 2013 for the fight against Pancreatic Cancer. I am asking you to donate $1 for every mile that I am running. Your efforts will contribute to:
1. Scholarship Program – providing scholarships to children and grandchildren that have lost a loved one to PC or have a loved one fighting.
2. Patient Financial Aid Program – providing families fighting PC with financial aid to help pay the every day bills.
3. Research for a cure, early detection test or improving the quality of life.
Every $1 donated will help save someone's life. Please help me acheive my goal to support pancreatic cancer. Thank you!!!
