THE STORY:

This is my 5th year running in the Pittsburgh Marathon and raising money for this great charity.  In 2014, a great group friends and I formed Team J and ran the marathon relay.  This year, I will be running the Half Marathon again in support of this great cause.  Many of you reading this have supported me throughout the last 5 years and I greatly appreciate that.  If you have a few extra dollars and would like to support a cause that not only means alot to me but to all of the people that are suffering from this disease right now, please consider making a donation.

The reason this charity means alot to me is below and I would like to thank you for taking the time to stop by my fundraising page.

Sincerely,

Brian

 

 

Why the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society means so much to us:

THE STORY:

Many years ago a girl (Jessica) came into our lives through a good friend (Justin).  This young lady was the most courageous person we have ever met.  She had a great outlook on life and was always all smiles when she was around us.  We would soon learn about her struggle.  She was battling a form of Lymphoma.  It always seemed that no matter what she was struggling with we would never know because she was in such great spirits.  In July of 2009, we received a call from Justin telling us that she had lost her courageous battle against this disease.  She was such a strong young lady and it makes us wonder why a girl so young and beautiful would have to battle this disease.  Justin struggled every day after Jessica passed and unfortunately in April of 2012 Justin and Jess were once again reunited, when Justin unexpectedly died in a motorcycle accident.  It helps us to know that Justin's struggle was now over and that he was once again happy and with the love of his life.  Not a day goes by that we don’t think about them and we are out to help with finding a cure.
