BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: LLS Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
We will be running the Pittsburgh half marathon on May 1st and have decided to run the race in honor of those who are not able to due to health issues. We have decided to run for charity as a way of giving back.
We have chosen The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as our charity. Every 3 minutes someone will be diagnosed with some sort of blood related cancer and every 9 minutes someone dies from this disease. Any type of cancer is horrible, but this type has affected us on more than one occasion, losing both Tom's father and a sister to the disease.
We are asking that you would consider making a donation to help battle this horrible disease. If you can, thank you from the bottom of our heart. Just click on the attached link to donate. If you can't, thank you for at least considering.
Tom and Alyssa
