NYC Marathon - Done!
November 07, 2016

"Run now, wine later." Yesterday, I took a tour of New York City, by foot, and I saw that phrase on a few signs.  :) Although I did not run  See more

EVENT: Team V | 2016 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016

LEA CHAN

THE STORY:

Hello!  I'll be running 26.2 miles in my hometown in honor of my friend, Maryluz Gonzalez, and friends and family who have been affected by cancer. 

Maryluz and I have been friends since 2002 when we became coworkers in San Jose, CA.  Even though I don't live in California anymore, we have remained friends, and I have watched her and her husband, Charlie, become parents to two great kids.  Maryluz is a true inspiration, fighting breast cancer with humor and grace.

While I have run marathons before, this one will be the most meaningful as every step and every mile will be for Maryluz and those I know who have been affected by cancer.  Running 26.2 miles is easy compared to beating cancer.

In the past 22 years, The V Foundation has awarded more than $150 million to cancer research and related programs nationwide.

Jim Valvano’s “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”® spirit is alive now more than ever. And it is the perfect motto to carry us through the largest marathon in the world.  With continued support, we will forge ahead with innovative research.
