I've decided to run the 2011 Los Angeles Marathon this year because of a greater goal than just personal weightloss and fitness.This will be my 5th Los Angeles Marathon, the last one I completed being in 2002. At 40 years old this time, I'm not as young or as lean as I was the last time I tackled this goal. 26.2 miles is a LONG way. But I want to make it about more than me, so I've decided to make it a fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society, because I've had several clients and family members of personal friends die from this terrible disease this year and over the past several years. The affects on a family are devastating. I was with one of my clients in hospice the day he passed, seeing him literally an hour before cancer finally claimed him. I didn't even recognize him. We need to do all we can to raise money to find a cure for cancer. And I'm asking your help, as my clients or as my friends to make a donation. I'm putting this request out to everyone I know. Help me help others. If we can just save one more life, my 26.2 mile run will be worth it. Please donate NOW. Thanks in advance! - Mark Kennedy
