BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
It seems like yesterday I lost one of the most loving, caring, and passionate people I've ever met, Mary Jane, my mother-in-law. When I signed up for this fundraising goal, she was going through chemo treatments and fighting the cancer symptoms. Now that she's in a better place, I want to continue her legacy through the support of ACS. Specifically, Hope Lodge and cancer research.
When I signed up for the Missouri Tough Mudder race, I found that they offer partner support and the American Cancer Society was on the list of foundations. It seems appropriate and meaningful to support an organization that has helped my family through this tough time and making strides to cure the disease. Mary Jane enjoyed living life and she would have been in full support of racing through the mud for this good cause.
