THE STORY:

I was looking for a way to make my 2014 Boston marathon qualification more than a race I had no chance of winning, and found it in the Melanoma Foundation of New England.  I lost my mother to melanoma when I was 15 years old, and am running to support the Melanoma Foundation of New England’s effort to reduce the incidence of melanoma through both prevention and early detection on the 25th year anniversary of her death.

Melanoma is a disease that has rapidly risen in incidence over the past 25 years, especially among young adults.  As a medical Oncologist in southern Maine I was impressed with the creativity of MFNE’s “The Skinny on Skin” program designed to reduce the number of late stage, scalp melanomas. The “Your Skin is In” program is another proactive educational effort designed to curb indoor tanning and other high risk behaviors among high school and college students in New England.  Since advanced stage melanoma remains incurable, educational campaigns such as these remain essential efforts to save lives from this disease.

I am honored to join the Melanoma Foundation of New England in their effort to combat the rising incidence of melanoma, and ask that you please consider supporting this important mission.

Melanoma Foundation of New England wrote -

While we are forever changed by the events that took place on April 15, 2013 and the days that followed, we will not let this define our experience. Before the tragedies on Marathon Monday, Team Running for Cover was already a remarkable group of individuals who came together to take on the challenge of the marathon and raise money for a cause they are passionate about.  They are now forever bonded, pulling together as teammates – and now friends – they supported each other and never waivered in their dedication to the team’s mission. 

The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission is to reduce the incidents of melanoma in the New England region through education, prevention and support. MFNE hosts a range of educational programs to spread awareness. These programs include Your Skin Is In, a program teaching high school and college students the dangers of tanning, and The Skinny on Skin, which teaches beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients.

Team Running for Cover is running the 2014 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand these educational programs throughout the New England Area.
