BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: LLS Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
I am running the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon for something much bigger than myself this year. Everybody knows somebody who has had to fight or is currently fighting against cancer. Personally, I have lost family to it and I have seen loved ones suffer because of it. I have also witnessed those who have fought hard and defeated it... some of which have had the immeasurable strength to do so multiple times. While there are many battling against cancer at this very moment and others who will be forced to join the fight, as a preemptive strike, I will run in order to raise money for the fight against it. Please join me in the fight by helping me raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I chose this fundraiser in memory of my late grandmothers who fought hard against cancer, as well as some others who are very close to me who have had the strength to beat NHL multiple times.
Any contribution would be more than appreciated. While the fight against cancer is undoubtedly a hard road, it's a road that I'm willing to run 26.2 miles on in order to spread awareness and contribute to that effort. Screw cancer.
