THE STORY:

PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION wrote -

Dear Family and Friends,

This October I am running in my 3rd marathon--a big one for me as I am running in honor of my grandmother, Baba, who passed on March 8 because of cancer.  While I've trained and run the 26.2 miles before, this is the first time I am running linked to a charity.  Truly, I couldn't think of one I am more proud to represent.  

I had the distinct honor of knowing a lovely little girl named Maria.  Maria and her parents taught me a lesson or two about faithfulness in the midst of tragedy, and the beauty of loving and caring for others.  I can't imagine the pain that Maria's family felt the day she passed from their arms to God's, but know that her spirit lives on in the work of the Prayers From Maria Foundation.  I pray that together you and I can help give other parents and their children hope, too.  

Prayers From Maria is proud to be a charity partner of the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon. Our team members are raising funds that will go directly to children's glioma brain tumor research.

Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer each year. One-third of those children are diagnosed with brain tumors, and nearly half of those brain tumors are gliomas. Over 97% of children with the worst of the gliomas, diffuse pontine gliomas, die within three years. We cannot ignore this shocking statistic, and we hope that you won’t either. We need your help. 

The Prayers from Maria Foundation is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas; raising public awareness about gliomas and bringing hope to children and their families who deal with the hardships of this disease.

Please support our team by making a donation today! Consider giving a gift of $1 per mile, or make a flat donation in memory or in honor of someone you know and love that has battled against an ugly disease like my grandmother, or just because you know how beautiful life is and how precious children are to our world! : )  Even $5 puts us that much closer to finding an answer.  Life is good and God is great. Whatever your gift, be it money or prayers, I am SO grateful for your support!

Thank you!

Katie
