BENEFITING: The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2014
I'm running my first half marathon (Memorial Sloan Kettering's Fred's Team Presents Grete's Great Gallop) on the same day that my friend Mary and her Groovy Graham Gang are partidipating in the Susan G. Komen 5K. I'd like to contribute to the Groovy Graham efforts via my run.
Here's a message from my friend Mary: "In January of this year I was diagnosed with Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer. After receiving the news, I underwent surgery followed by chemotherapy which ended the last week of June. I will be having 6-weeks of radiation starting in September to complete the treatment plan. I am grateful for all the love and support that was provided to me and my family every step of the way, but I would ideally hope to help find a cure so no one needs to walk the same path. Until a Cure is found, donations also help support many people who are fighting the good fight along the way!"
I hope that my personal challenge of this half-marathon will contribute to the efforts of Mary and the Groovy Graham Gang! Go Mary G.!
