Here's how this started:
1) Matt won a spot in the New York City Marathon
2) We had discussed doing something, probably starting a foundation in Mollie's name, to raise money for a pediatric cancer organization
3) I am a fan of CURE Childhood Cancer on Facebook
I saw a post from CURE Childhood Cancer that said, "Are you running in the ING NYC Marathon? Check out what our friends at iRunnerBlog & Brooks Sports are doing and join their fundraising team to raise $50K to support CURE Childhood Cancer!"
Um... sign us up!
We are doing this as a husband-wife team in honor of our children, especially our daughter Mollie who is a leukemia survivor. Matt will be doing the training and the running, and I will be doing the fundraising and support. Together we are trying to raise $2500. This money will go to CURE Childhood Cancer, an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization that commits money to pediatric cancer research grants, pediatric oncology fellowships, and patient and family support and education. Please help us meet our goal!
