BENEFITING: IMPACT Melanoma
ORGANIZER: IMPACT Melanoma
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Thanks for checking out my page and donating to the Melanoma Foundation of New England. I've wanted to run the Boston Marathon for a long time, but was never sure which charity I should run for. I chose to run with MFNE's group, "Running for Cover" because my Uncle Kevin is a melanoma survivor and longtime marathon runner.
The money this group raises does wonders to help with programs dedicated to the fight against melanoma (more details below). Thanks again and see you at the finish line.
