EVENT: 2015 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015

Julie Kimbro

THE STORY:

My personal mantra when I run is: "I run because I can. For all those who can't." There was a time (not so long ago) I was physically unable to run due to spinal issues, and there are many people in my life who, for various reasons, are unable to run.

Whether cancer survivors, cancer warriors, those with other illnesses or physical limitation, or those angels who have gone before me in death, they are either no longer here, or able to run. Many months ago, I made a promise to myself. Now that I am able to run again, I will keep running for all those who can't, until I am physically unable to do so.

Among the many personal reasons for which I am running the 2015 TCS NYC Marathon is all of those people. Each has touched my life and my heart in a different way. And I will carry each person in my heart on race day. I trust that their collective strength will enable me to break down the wall and cross the finish line in New York City.

To give even more meaning to all of these miles of training and racing, I've set up this fundraiser for the National Brain Tumor Society (Rated a Charity Navigator four-star charity). I'd like to honor two specific Cancer Warriors in my life - Tony Salati and David Neumann, whose lives have each been touched and dramatically changed by their diagnosis of Brain Cancer. I ask that you contribute whatever amount you are able to give to help the National Brain Tumor Society find a cure for those living with brain tumors today, and anyone who will be diagnosed in the future.

For this, I sincerely thank you.

 

About the National Brain Tumor Society:

Today, nearly 700,000 Americans are living with a primary brain tumor, and 69,000 more will be diagnosed this year. With no available cure and limited treatment options, brain tumors dramatically impact the quality of life for all those affected. But all of us have reason to hope for a better prognosis for those living with a brain tumor today and anyone who will be diagnosed tomorrow.

Driven by a vibrant, hopeful, and tireless community, the National Brain Tumor Society’s strategic initiatives and funded programs aim to improve an understanding of all brain tumors to transform research into new and effective treatments, as quickly as possible. To achieve these goals, we also foster collaboration with leaders in the private sector, government, and academia to drive systemic change within all facets of the drug discovery and development landscape.

The National Brain Tumor Society is the largest nonprofit dedicated to the brain tumor community in the United States, and we won’t rest until a cure exists. For more information - visit http://braintumor.org/
