BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: LLS Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
I am running the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon (my FIRST half-marathon-- EEEK!) to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. When I was a Sophomore in high school, my mother was diagnosed with a rare form of Lymphoma that first appeared as a tumor in her breast. After six months of treatment, she was declared in remission and has been in remission for FIVE years this May-- that is incredible. I chose to raise money for this cause because I am one of the lucky ones who is able to say that my mother fought AND won her battle with cancer, but not everyone gets to have the same experience. I am raising money for my mother and for those who have won their battle, lost their battle, and are still fighting their battle.
Thank you for checking out my fundraising page and for supporting me in my endeavors! You can keep up with my training on my Instagram account, @knight_inchaarg.
