Thank you for visiting my page. Many thanks to all who have supported me in the past. April 21, 2014 will mark my 3rd Boston Marathon and for this very special Boston Marathon year, I am asking for your continued support. As you have heard by now, I have a fundraising goal of $12,000. Not only am I asking for your continued support but I am asking that you please be an ambassador and share MFNE's mission with your friends.
The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission resonates with many people as its invaluable and unique educational programs continue to contribute to awareness each and every day. As an older sister of a stage three melanoma cancer survivor, this mission is extremely close to my heart. I could not be more proud of my sister and more honored to be running Boston for MFNE.
THIS IS A WIN-WIN: YOUR gifts in the support of my race directly impacts the mission of MFNE. Thank YOU for making a difference in the lives of so many New Englanders. And on behalf of my family, over the course of nearly nine years; your support in this cause and mission continues to amaze us. We sincerely appreciate your efforts, your dedication, and perhaps most importantly- your humor.
Let yourself be inspired by reading MFNE's message and mission statement below.
A Message from Melanoma Foundation of New England
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.
