THE STORY:

To my Family and Friends,

It is with great pride that I announce I will be fulfilling a lifelong goal of participating in the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon in November. My training has begun and I could not be more excited to participate in such a well-known event.

From the first day I ran cross country in high school, I knew that running a marathon would be in my future. Running has made me a stronger person, both physically and mentally. I have become a more motivated person because of the goals, both small and large, I have set and achieved as a runner. A challenge is meant to shape oneself, which I’m proud to say running has done for me in my past, present, and will continue to do in my future.

According to the American Cancer Society, half of the male population and one third of the female population will develop cancer in his or her lifetime. Cancer affects every race, gender, socioeconomic status, and age, and continues to be one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Each year, new developments and data are released; however, more work still needs to be done.

My educational attainment from Syracuse University and New York University have enriched my passion in the healthcare field. Eventually, I hope to pursue my goal of becoming a doctor and to provide support to those who need it in the most vulnerable stages of their lives. As such, I plan to run this marathon in honor of those who have battled cancer.

Accordingly, proceeds from my fundraiser will be directed to The American Cancer Society. I have had so many loved ones diagnosed with cancer, some of who were fortunate enough to survive and others who sadly, lost the battle. It is here that I ask my family and friends to donate to this special cause. It is generous people like you, that one day there will be a cure.

Wish me luck! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

With much love and gratitude,

Melissa
