BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: LLS Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
As most of you know, this year has been very difficult for our entire family. My Uncle Wayne was diagnosed with Leukemia last May and is working hard to fight his battle. It has been a year of ups and downs for all of us. There were times when we all felt helpless and had to keep the faith and know that we were there for each other. Still feeling helpless but having more faith than ever, raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was something I knew I could do.
I always said that I was not interested in running another half, but knowing what he has gone through has made me want to fight more, work harder, and raise money so that we can work together to find a cure.
I am running for my Uncle Wayne, my family, and all those who are still battling.
