Leticia's Run for Pancreatic Cancer
Organized by: Leticia Pardo
EVENT DATE Nov 06, 2016
IMPORTANT –– HOW TO READ THIS PETITION:
If you're a very busy person, read only underlined bolds.
I began running last summer. Back then, running for 2 whole minutes was an enormous achievement. I've progressed little by little and here I am training for my first marathon! But I'll need your support, since I've decided on running it to raise funds for a charity:
Six years ago, my mother left this world after fighting for a year and a half against pancreatic cancer. As many of you might know, the process was tough and frustrating... lots of impotence and few medical solutions.
I'll be running on November 6th to honor her fight and to raise funds for Project Purple, a non for profit foundation devoted to raising awareness and funds towards a cure for this type of cancer –– perhaps one of the most devastating.
Please help me with a donation. Any help is good! Let's support the research around this illness to ensure that future pancreatic cancer patients have more chances of winning the fight.
(Confession –– It doesn't matter how much I progress, getting up early to train on the weekends is still the toughest challenge...)
If you can, please share this campaign with whoever you think could help the cause!
Thanks for all your support
PS. If you're in NYC November 6th, please come cheer for me and celebrate after the race!!!
(Yes, we can drink mezcal.)
