Joseph Pray II
Hey family, friends, co-workers. On March 13th I'll be participating in a 1/2 marathon set up to aid cancer patients and families. Celebrate Life honors, remembers and celebrates those who have fought against cancer. The race annually raises funds to assist cancer patients in their financial needs donating 100% of the proceeds to patients in treatment. No overhead nor administrative expenses, what they raise they donate. Any donation is appreciated and welcome. Many of you know that I'm a cancer survivor and can honestly say that it was the charity of my family, co-workers, and organizations that made it tolerable. I/we have lost co-workers, friends, and most dearly, family to cancer. I work as a nurse on an Oncology floor of a hospital and am continually reminded of the financial struggle that burdens people that should be focusing on life and recovery. Keep your head up and keep swimming was my motto when going thru this battle, and now a friend of mine is facing this battle. Help me to repay the debt I owe so many by raising funds for those in need. If you would rather, be part of the Motivational Mile, a stretch of signs at mile one and again mile 11 dedicated to loved ones who have faced cancer.
