THE STORY:

This year I have taken a crazy leap of faith and chosen to sign up for the Pittsburgh Marathon. 26.2 miles of Pittsburgh hills and bridges.  I will finish and even if its dead last its still ahead of everyone who has never tried. 

I also decided to run for this great charity again this year.  The people at the Mario Lemieux Foundation do great things for people that really need it and not only in the Pittsburgh Community.  Each one of you that donates gives me another reason to keep pushing forward with my training and gives this foundation the money to help those that are truly in need.  

Thank you for your donation and support on this insane journey I have decided to take.

The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playroom Project, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities.  The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created in 1993 by hockey legend Mario Lemieux. In that year, Mario was enjoying the greatest season of his brilliant career and on pace to establish a new NHL scoring record. Then he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease.

 

After a successful battle with Hodgkin's, Mario is now 22 years cancer free and his experience led him to focus on ways to assist those not so fortunate. He devotes much of his time to the Foundation raising funds to help reach the ultimate goal: a cure for cancer.
