BENEFITING: Melanoma Foundation of New England
ORGANIZER: Melanoma Foundation of New England
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
This April I will be running the Boston Marathon for the Melanoma Foundation in honor of my cousin, but I will also run for everyone who has suffered or lost a life to melanoma. It is not every day that we have the opportunity to make a difference in someone elses life. I am honored to use my love of running to help this important cause.
This will be my 14th Boston Marathon, my 9th year running for the Melanoma Foundation of NE and my 26th marathon. Thank you for your support!
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.
