I started running in 2009 as way of losing weight, but soon I got hooked. I love the camaraderie of running with my friends and family. It has been my dream to run and finish the ING NYC Marathon.
On Feb. 26th 2011 I had a Brain Tumor that was found with a stage 4 cancer. I am currently getting treatment from Sloan Kettering for radiation and chemo. When you or your loved ones have cancer, you see things differently and how fragile life is. I see things that are more importantly now, friends, family and being part of something to help.
We chose The Kortney Rose Foundation and will be running as part of "Team Kortney" Together we are collecting sponsors for the Kortney Rose Foundation (KRF), which is 501 (c) (3) , which raises money for pediatric brain cancer research and awareness.
Kortney's story has inspired us to run. She was 9 years old girl with a winning personality whose life was cut short by a brain cancer. She was diagnosed in December of 2005 and only 4 short months later in April 2006. Her parents started the Kortney Rose Foundation to create a legacy for Kortney of helping other children with brain tumors through their promise of research.
I am running the marathon, which is 26.2 miles. I am hoping you will be so kind to sponsor me. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children suffering from brain tumors, as we work to GET BRAIN TUMORS OFF KIDS' MINDS!
Thank you for help! Please make donations directly through this sponsor page. For more information about The Kortney Rose Foundation. Please visit www.kortneyrosefoundation.org
