I am excited to be running the Boston Marathon with the Melonoma Foundation of New England Run for Cover team. I thank you for your interest in supporting me in fundraising for this worthy cause.
I chose to join the Melanona Foundation team as skin cancer has directly affected me I had two cancerous moles removed from my nose and back in early 2014 luckily neither was melanoma I also have a history of skin cancer in my family from my father and maternal grandmother. I also have a close friend who dealt with melanoma in 2013.
This running of the Boston Marathon is further special to me as it is my 40th birthday weekend.

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 2015 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.
