BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Aug 19, 2017
Dear friends and family:
On August 19, 2017, I will be running the Leadville 100 "Race Across the Sky" Trail Run...One hundred miles of extreme Colorado Rockies terrain — from elevations of 9,200 to 12,600 feet and a total of more than 18,000 feet of climbing. In conjunction with this, I want to raise $10,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Cancer is a scourge in our world...it discriminates against no one and touches everyone. I want to run for all of the people who are affected by cancer, including patients and families.
I want to run in memory of my dad, who we lost to cancer 5 years ago.
I want to run in memory of my friend Holly, and for her family that goes on without her.
I want to run for my friend who just found out her cancer has come back.
I want to run for my mom and all of my friends who have who fought cancer, dealing with horrific treatments, and survived.
I want to run for my friends who lost siblings to lung cancer in the past years - in memory of young people who had young families themselves.
I hope you will join me in my challenge to raise $10,000 - any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated.
Much love, Ilene
