For the first time in my 10 years of running I have decied to give back and run my 10th Chicago Marathon this fall for a charity. With so many great charities and causes out there, I thought the choice would be hard and than I realized that there was one that really stood out and was different then many of them.
I chose Imerman Angels because their focus is on providing one on one help to those that are both currently fighthing their battle with cancer and with those that have overcome this great battle. Not only do their mentors give support to those with cancer but also the caregiviers that are caring for these people. I believe that just like in a race having support, belief that you can fight someting and overcome it is just as important in the battle of beating cancer. The more that people know that there are people that have won this battle and that they can ask them questions and recieve support from them can help make the difference in that person winning their battle over cancer. It's one thing to hear that someone has won this battle but to actually be able to talk to these people to ask them questions and lean on them for support just takes the hope and belief to a higher level.
I'm running in honor of all who have been affected by cancer. I'm running for my family members that have lost thier lives to cancer (Aunt Cindy, Uncle Mark, Aunt Nancy my wife's Grandpa Smith). I'm running for friends that have beaten their battle with cancer like our dear friend, Kristen and I'm running for friends and family members that are currently figthing the battle against cancer like my cousin Fred.
So, please help me raise as much money as possible for this AMAZING charity. Let's help give the gift of hope to those that are fighting cancer and that they CAN win their battle and to those that have overcome it. I truly belive with your help, we can make the love and support of this charity reach out and touch so many lives.
