THE STORY:

On April 17th 2017, I am very excited to be running my first Boston Marathon, a dream that has been over four years in the making. With race day approaching, I am proud to say that I will be joining Team Running for Cover to raise funding and awareness for the Melanoma Foundation of New England (MFNE). I am honored to be supporting this great organization, and I will be proudly running the 26.2 miles in memory of my uncle, Jim "Big Jimi" Scheide.

In July 2014, my uncle passed away after a courageous battle with Melanoma. Jim lived life with a contageous fun-loving energy that brought happiness to everyone he touched - to this day, Jim continues to be a fountain of optimism and positivity to all of us lucky enough to have known him. As race day approaches, I ask that you join me in honoring Big Jimi and furthering the fight against Melanoma, and that you please kindly donate to this outstanding cause - no amount is too small to make a difference!

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support - with your help and with Jim by my side, I am confident that we will go the distance on April 17th!

Please also feel free to take a look at the great work being done by the MFNE:

The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission is to reduce the incidents of melanoma 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 importance of protecting their skin and dangers of tanning; The Skinny On Skin, educating beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients; and Practice Safe Skin Sunscreen providing free sunscreen to communities for their beaches, parks, sports fields and more. MFNE also offers support for patients and their caregivers through support groups and its one-on-one Billy's Buddies program.  All programs are free!

Team Running for Cover is running the 2017 Boston Marathon to raise awareness about the importance of protecting your skin and funds to support MFNE's mission. Thank you for your help!
