BENEFITING: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 26, 2014
I am SO excited to be running in another race benefiting the Prayers From Maria Foundation. The story behind this organization is so touching and motivating which is why I have decided to take time to train for my first full marathon while more importantly, raising funds to support those children who have passed or are currently suffering from Gliomas. Please take the time to look through the website as it does a great job explaining how the funds donated to hospitals such as Case Western and MetroHealth who then are able to turn it into multi-million dollar research funds.
The greatest part is that PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE! This is such a wonderful yet challenging opportunity for me and having your support would mean not only the world to me, but to these children.
From the Foundation:
Prayers from Maria is proud to be a charity partner of the Marine Corps Marathon for our 2nd year! In 2013 our team of 25 runners was able to raise over $27,000 for children's glioma research! In 2014, we hope to not only grow our team to 50 members, but hope to double the amount from last year.
Please support our runners and consider making a donation to our cause. 100% of the money raised from this race will go directly to funding our next research grant, which will focus on treatment, and hopefully a cure, for these deadly childhood brain tumors.
