BENEFITING: International Myeloma Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I've never run a marathon nor have i ever really raised a significant amount of money for much of anything. Running a marathon has been on my mind in recent years but I couldn't quite found a reason to do so beyond my own pride and feeling of great accomplishment.
So while thinking about training for the NYC Marathon I wondered if I could do it for a cause. I thought of all the different people in my life that live with all different kinds of conditions including: diabetes, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, HIV/AIDS, myeloma and numerous others. I also thought of all the causes I have invested knowledge of including: mental health, poverty, the environment, hunger and more. When it came down to it I realized that all of the above were worthy of my fund raising. But one person and one condition stood out in my mind above the others: Deb Jordan and Myeloma.
